(CelebrityAccess) — Festicket, the festival discovery and ticketing service, announced the appointment of Ed Walsh as Strategic Commercial Director at the company.
Walsh comes to Festicket after a two-year stint as Music Account Director at Eventbrite, where he developed an overall accounts strategy for the company and worked with clients such as The MJR Group and global clubbing brand elrow.
His prior experience also includes senior roles at NVS Music Group, Broadwick Live and Mainstage Travel.
“I think it is a really exciting time to be working with Festicket and Event Genius,” said Walsh. “Having a complete 360-degree product set is something I think is going to be a game-changer in the ticketing space and I really want to be part of helping the team fulfill that potential.”
“The role is a natural fit for my skill set and experience,” Walsh added. “Having previously worked on the promoter side of the industry, I feel I have a unique outlook that I can bring to the business. When I learned about the acquisition I thought it was a bold move. There is certainly room for disruption in the ticketing sector at the moment, and the product we have here is ready to lead that.”
