In this new role, Dahm (pictured) will be responsible for shaping, regulating and administering iHeartMedia’s privacy policies and strategies to meet global regulatory requirements.

Dahm will take on the new role in addition to his current one as iHeartMedia’s senior corporate counsel. He will also work closely with Steve Mills, iHeartMedia’s global chief information officer, and David Neuman, its global chief information security officer, to oversee company-wide data security and protection plans.

He joined the company in 2011 as senior corporate counsel – which he is continuing alongside the privacy role. Prior to joining iHeartMedia, Dahm worked in the corporate and securities section of Cox Smith Matthews and as a software developer for Motive Communications.

Rich Bressler, iHeartMedia’s president, COO and CFO, said: “Andrew is uniquely suited for this important new role at our company and has been at the centre of the legal aspects of all of our digital operations for several years, including the development of our privacy policies for consumers and employees and our third-party vendor relationships relating to privacy matters.”
