Rob Lewis, CEO of Electric Jukebox said,
“So much great music has come from the British Isles. Now it is time for the best of British tech to come to America. Revolutionary tech will no longer be the exclusive preserve of the Silicon Valley giants. ROXI is proud to be the beginning of the next British Invasion in America.”
Simon Cole, CEO of 7digital said,
“With over 60 customers whose music services we power in 45 markets, 7digital is headquartered in London but has a truly global perspective. We’re delighted to be working with Rob Lewis and his team to bring ROXI to the United States. I’m proud of what we’ve achieved and excited by ROXI’s prospects.”
