Muller comments, “It’s an honour to lead Vevo’s New Zealand operation and I’m looking forward to showcasing what the platform has to offer to the New Zealand marketplace in the coming months. With Kiwi artists becoming more prominent on the music scene in recent years, it’s a great time for Vevo to raise its profile across New Zealand”
