Sales Chief Out at Vevo

David Kohl departs as music video brand approaches NewFront

Is there trouble at the top at Vevo?

David Kohl, the top sales executive at the music video company, has left. He was hired as evp of sales and customer operations in 2009 to get the fledgling music brand off the ground. Vevo officials confirmed Kohl’s departure but declined to comment at this time.

By most measures, Vevo has been a tremendous success. Billed as a Hulu for music videos, the joint venture between Universal Music Group, Sony Music and Abu Dhabi Media has become one of the most trafficked video destinations on the Web over the past four years—largely on the back of YouTube (Vevo serves as the default destination for music video searches on YouTube).

The site drew close to 50 million unique viewers in February, according to comScore.
