Apple Music has a new man at the top after Apple announced today the promotion of Oliver Schusser.

In the role, he'll aslo oversee Apple's services outside the U.S., including the App Store and iTunes.

Schusser will divide his time between Apple Park in Cupertino and Apple's offices in Culver City, while continuing to lead worldwide teams in 38 markets.

Variety found out the news from an internal memo that also revealed that Apple Music now has over 40M paid subscribers in 115 countries. Now we're hearing that the service has now surpassed 40 million subscribers.

That confirmation backs up MBW's analysis from earlier this week, which showed that Apple Music is now outpacing Spotify in terms of global subscriber additions.

By comparison, industry leader Spotify - which publicly listed its shares last week, fetching a market capitalization of $29 billion - disclosed in February that it had 71 million paying subscribers.
