Spotify Exec. killed in Stockholm terrorist attack

Spotify Exec. killed in Stockholm terrorist attackChris Bevington, an executive at Spotify, was among the victims killed in last Friday’s terrorist truck attack in Stockholm, Sweden, Varity reported.

Varity stated that the streaming service’s founder, Daniel Ek, confirmed with a Facebook post on Sunday.

Ek stated:

It is with shock and a heavy heart that I can confirm that Chris Bevington from our Spotify team lost his life in Friday’s senseless attack on Stockholm.

Chris has been a member of our band for over 5 years. He has had a great impact on not just the business but on everyone who had the privilege to know and work with him. There are no words for how missed he will be or for how sad we all are to have lost him like this.

Whilst this terrible news is sinking in, our primary focus is on supporting the family and loved ones of Chris in any way we possibly can.

I am as deeply saddened and upset as all of you that something like this could happen in Sweden. The only light in this deeply tragic moment is the outpouring of love, compassion and solidarity that we have seen from everyone. And that was exactly the kind of person Chris was as well.

We will greatly miss you Chris. Rest in Peace my friend.

The first victim of Friday’s terror attack in Stockholm has been identified as an 11-year old girl, Ebba Akerlund who was walking home from school.
