Following our recent acquisition of Ticket Arena and Event Genius, we are pleased to now announce the appointments of Harvey Goldsmith CBE and Ian McCaig to our board.
Harvey will be joining us as Senior Advisor, while Ian will be our new Chairman of the Board.
Harvey Goldsmith CBE is a visionary producer and promoter of rock concerts, charity events and television broadcasts, with achievements in the industry stretching back over more than 50 years. He has produced, managed and promoted shows with most of the world’s major artists and was responsible for the two largest music events the world has ever seen: Live Aid and Live 8.
A well known name in the travel industry, McCaig joined the founders and the board of lastminute.com in 2003 when it was still a public company. He was appointed CEO in 2006 following the sale of lastminute.com to Sabre Corporation for $1.1bn and led the development of the business for a further five years.
We believe that these appointments mark another major step forward in helping deliver on our mission to become the world's largest two-sided platform for live events.
Zack Sabban, our CEO & co-founder, commented: "We’re so happy to welcome both Ian and Harvey to the company. Having admired their careers from afar for some time, to be able to have them join the Festicket family at this exciting time and help accelerate us to the next level in our development is something we’re very pleased to have been able to make happen."
