Sunita Kaur has over 17 years’ experience in the media industry, including stints at Time Warner, Singapore Press Holdings, Microsoft and Facebook. She moved from Facebook to her current position as Director, Asia for Spotify because she 'missed that whole startup, right at the beginning when you’re all squeezed into a service office feel, which is always the best time of any company'.
