Pandora Founder Takes Over As CEO

It seems like a trend lately for the founders of big tech companies to take the helm of their own company at some point. Heck, that strategy is working out so far for Google but the jury is still out on Twitter and a handful of others. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Pandora's founder Tim Westergren is taking over the reins at the streaming service, the company announced today. Westergren replaces former CEO Brian McAndrews effective immediately, as the company installs a new management structure. Chief strategy officer Sara Clemens will take over as COO, and CFO Mike Herring has added president to his role at the company.
