Tunetribe, one of the early players in the download space, but which has been pretty quiet for a number of years now, has recently started expanding its executive team again.

Last month Terry Boland, who has worked in both fashion and mobile retail over the last three decades, and most recently has run his own retail consultancy, was appointed as General Manager charged with the task of “consolidating and building on Tunetribe’s existing success while implementing an ambitious strategy for growth”.

And now the firm’s IT development team has been expanded too with the appointment of Vinod Duraisamy and Vasanth Ramanathan as Senior Java Developer and Web Developer respectively. The new tech appointments come as Tunetribe completes an overhaul of its online platform and launches into the cloud-locker space.

Confirming Boland’s appointment, Tunetribe’s CEO William Haighton told CMU: “I have known Terry for many years and have always admired the way he has made a success of everything he has turned his hand to. There are very few executives who have the breadth of experience and in-depth knowledge of the UK retail sector than Terry, so to persuade him to come on board is a huge coup for our company. 2013 is all about us taking Tunetribe to the next level and we have an exciting strategy for major growth that Terry will be instrumental in implementing”.

Meanwhile on his new tech colleagues, Haighton continued: “We have an absolute commitment to providing the best possible service to our customers at all levels of our offering. This new investment in state-of-the-art cloud based technologies is a statement of our intent to make Tunetribe the best user-experience in the digital entertainment sector. The addition of Vinod and Vasanth to our team of core developers is a real coup for us as they are both at the very top of their game and bring a huge amount of experience and creativity to their new roles”.
