Westergren, who co-founded Pandora in 2000, served as its Chief Executive and president from May 2002 to July 2004, before returning to the company as its chief executive previous year.
Earlier this month, SiriusXM invested $480m in Pandora. Both these moves have resulted in a cash infusion of roughly US$700m. Westergren served as the company CEO from 2002 until 2004 but then became chief strategy officer; a series of executives succeeded him most recently Brian McAndrews, who Westergren replaced as CEO in March 2016. Since the start of 2017, Pandora's shares have fallen more than 35 percent, to around $8.43 Monday. As part of that deal, Sirius will get to put three new members on Pandora's board of directors, including the company's next board chairman, and it is expected to have a big influence on Pandora's direction.

They even hit an all-time low a few days after the Sirius XM deal.
