Press Release · Pittsburgh, PA, USA · via Relev8 ·

Julep Media GmbH (“Julep”), Germany’s largest independent platform for podcast advertising – a Liberated Syndication Inc. (“Libsyn”) company, today announced its expansion into Spain with a localized version of its podcast platform and the appointment of two audio and sales experts to drive growth for the region. Based in Madrid, Madelón Lánchez (previously at LBK. Immersive Audio Productions, S.L.), will be responsible for Partner Management, and Javier Huertas, based in Barcelona (previously at TikTok and Httpool, where he was Spotify Partner Director), will serve as Country Director, Spain.

Julep has been part of Libsyn, the leading U.S.-based all-in-one podcasting platform for creators and advertisers, since 2022. The acquisition bolstered Libsyn’s presence in international markets, enabling the company to become the global destination for creators looking to monetize and brands looking for exposure to the fast-growing podcast media market. In addition to its core market of Germany, Julep is already active in Austria and Switzerland. Spain marks Julep’s fourth European territory, with continued international expansion for the Libsyn subsidiary expected this year.
