NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Sean Moriarty, President and CEO at Ticketmaster, announced that he was resigning from both his position at the company and the firm's board of directors, effective March 24th.
Morarity joined Ticketmaster in 2007 and during his tenure, the firm enjoyed significant growth both in the United States and abroad, and expanded the scope of its operations through acquisitions of companies including TicketsNow and Emma Entertainment, China's leading promoter of Western acts and largest ticketing agency, and strategic investments in businesses such as iLike and Echo Music.
However, the arrival of Irving Azoff and Frontline Management last November, cast Moriarty's role with the newly-merged company in some doubt. Azoff now serves in the role of CEO of Ticketmaster Entertainment
"Sean's passion for the company and its people has been profound and his leadership, particularly driving product and technology innovation, has led Ticketmaster's transformation into a major global ecommerce player and created the foundation for Ticketmaster Entertainment to further transform live entertainment," said Azoff.
"I'll always be grateful for my time spent at Ticketmaster with its truly outstanding people and I wish the company every success in the future," said Sean Moriarty. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
