Former Spotify executive Sriram Krishnan has joined Tinder as head of international growth.

Based in San Francisco, Krishnan takes on a brief to build the brand in new markets, including Asia where the location-based dating app has flourished since launching four years ago.

Krishnan moves into the role after two years with Humin, a phone and contacts app that Tinder acquired last month in a move that signalled the brand’s development beyond hookups.

Krishnan led the expansion of Spotify in Asia Pacific in 2014, establishing the brand in countries including Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
