Apple Music has surpassed the 40 million subscribers milestone and has got a new boss, Oliver Schusser. He has been hired as the vice president of Apple Music & International Content.

Apple told that Schusser will be reporting to the Apple senior vice president Eddy Cue. He will be in charge of managing Apple Music, and running Apple services like the iTunes and App Store outside of the US. Schusser was previously involved in the launch of Apple services like App Store, iTunes Store, and iBooks for international markets, as well as managed label, studio, and publisher relations for Apple outside the US.
