The company's controller Paul Sawyer will step in to fill the role.

Luca Baratta will resign his position as Spotify's chief accounting officer, according to an SEC filing Wednesday (Sept. 11). He is being replaced by Paul Sawyer, who currently serves as controller at the streaming company.

"Mr. Baratta's departure is not the result of any disagreement with the Company's accounting principles or practices," the filing reads.

Baratta has served as Spotify's chief accounting officer since early 2016. Prior to that he worked as vp finance and chief accounting officer at Twitter.

Baratta's departure follows that of global head of music Nick Holmstén, whose exit was confirmed by Billboard last Friday (he has transitioned to an "advisory role" going forward), as well as that of global head of curation Mike Biggane, who decamped for Universal Music Group in July.
