Man Who Brought Spotify to the PH Died in the Stockholm Attack
Chris Bevington, a 41-year-old Spotify executive, was one of the four victims in the April 7 attack in Stockholm. A UK citizen, Bevington had worked at the music streaming service’s Stockholm office in his position as the director of global partnerships/business development.
In this role, Bevington had teamed up with a local telecom company to bring Spotify to the Philippines.
His father shared his loss in a statement to the BBC: “We are all devastated by the untimely and tragic death of our talented, compassionate and caring son Chris. A wonderful husband, son, father, brother and close friend to many. The family requests absolute privacy at this incredibly difficult time to mourn his passing in peace.”
Bevington was killed last week, along with two Swedish and one Belgian citizen, when a 39-year-old Uzbek citizen allegedly hijacked a truck and used it target pedestrians. Fifteen people were reportedly injured in the terrorist attack, of which eight victims remain hospitalized.
