Mojo Concerts’ CEO, Wilbert Mutsaers, has stepped down after less than nine months at the helm of Live Nation’s Dutch operation.

Mutsaers’s appointment was announced last November, two weeks after the departure of former CEO Dick van Zuylen, and he stepped into the role on 1 January. He was previously station manager at NPO 3PM, roughly equivalent to the UK’s Radio 1.

In a Dutch-language statement, the promoter says the decision was made mutually with “respect and harmony” and cited a “difference of opinion on the future of the company” as the reason for the split.

Mojo tells IQ the company is not currently seeking a replacement for Mutsaers, with his duties taken up by former CEOs Leon Ramakers and John Mulder.

Mojo Concerts is the Netherlands’ largest touring and festival promoter, and organises the Lowlands, Pinkpop and North Sea Jazz festivals.
