Jaxsta announces formation of new leadership team with promotions


“I look forward to bringing renewed focus to digital, content, platforms, comms, SEO and partnerships across our ecosystem.”

Jaxsta has announced the formation of a new leadership team which sees the promotion of Alli Galloway to chief marketing officer (CMO) and Jessy Trengove to chief product officer (CPO). They now join CEO Josh Simons and CFO Jorge Nigalioni in the company’s new-look C-Suite.

Galloway takes on the role of CMO after two years with the business, having joined in 2021 as head of audience & creative.  She brings almost 18 years of music industry experience working across marketing, labels, tech and the live sector, having previously served as a senior executive at Warner Music Australia.

Now aligning the ecosystem of audiences across Jaxsta, Vampr and Vinyl.com, Galloway is making immediate contributions to strategic choices and co-leading initiatives that drive business expansion.

Trengove, meanwhile, joined Jaxsta following the completion of the acquisition of Vampr in June, having served as Vampr’s head of insights since early 2020. She now steps into the CPO role with the challenge of defining and aligning the product vision across the group’s different business units, which encompass a variety of product types and business models, from B2B and enterprise SaaS, to consumer app and ecommerce. 

Galloway said: “We’re entering a new phase for the business, and I look forward to bringing renewed focus to digital, content, platforms, comms, SEO and partnerships across our ecosystem. By incorporating best practices and creative thinking into every facet of marketing, I’m committed to a holistic approach for marketing strategies with long-term objectives in mind, as well as fostering a culture of continuous growth and learning. Jessy and I will ensure that collaboration between product and marketing is now solidified, in order to set a well-defined course for the future.”

Trengove said: “As the company evolved to encompass multiple brands, the need for a Chief Product Officer became clear, and I’m excited about taking on the challenge with these additional responsibilities. I’m particularly looking forward to unlocking synergies and integration opportunities across our ecosystem. As CPO I’ll continue to work with Josh to drive a data-informed culture throughout the company where user research and robust quantitative analysis lie at the heart of decision-making.”

The promotions of Galloway and Trengove come off the back of Josh Simons recently being announced as CEO, who rounds out the new-look C-Suite. Simons joined Jaxsta following the completion of the acquisition of Vampr which he founded in 2015, and was initially appointed chief strategy officer at Jaxsta before becoming CEO.

Jorge Nigalioni remains in place as company secretary and CFO, a role he has held with Jaxsta since 2020. He was formerly a non-executive director of Jaxsta since the company went public. This rounds out a four-person C-Suite with technical responsibilities now split between Tech Lead, Chris Lowe, who worked under Simons as CTO of Vampr since 2019, and Michael Stone, who has transitioned into a new role as Jaxsta Technical Director.

Simons said: “With Alli’s background deeply embedded in the music industry and Jessy bringing significant tech expertise from her time in the world of startups, they add an enviable combination of experience and stability to our leadership team. They have been instrumental in the growth and development of Jaxsta, Vampr and Vinyl in recent years, and it’s a pleasure to be able to recognise them for their commitment and achievement within the business to date.”
