Audio streaming company Spotify has appointed Shreyas Haridas as the new HRBP for South Asia, Middle East and Africa (SMEA) region. In his new role, Haridas will be responsible for helping drive the HR vision and execution of the people strategy in SMEA.
“Happy to share that I’m starting a new position as HRBP for SAMEA region at Spotify,” reads a post by Haridas on Linkedin.
Haridas has served Nomura, Disney Star, and Reliance Industries Limited in various roles during his decade-long career. Most recently he served Nomura as assistant vice president of human resources from April 2020 to September 2022.
Haridas was the winner of the People Matters ‘Are You In The List’ (RUL) 2016. He has varied interests – an avid reader, debater, quizzer and also a sportsperson. Passionate about music, he also went and formed a rock band while being equally eloquent with playing multiple instruments. Armed with an Engineering degree, his first exposure to HR was when he started preparing for his MBA exam. But HR resonated with his ideas and thoughts and he decided to take it as his career choice after thorough discussions with his seniors and professors.
He earned an MBA from the Symbiosis Centre For Management and Human Resource Development (SCMHRD) and a Bachelor of Engineering from Rajiv Gandhi Prodyogiki Vishwavidyalaya.
