I am excited to welcome Nick Harford as Head of Business Development, alongside Harriet Claydon as Head of Partnerships Activation to our growing team. Both have years of experience in the ticketing industry, latterly served through eBay's StubHub where they established its primary ticketing partnerships approach.

At Tickitto, we are on a mission to make sports, music, festivals, theatre, attractions, and experiences tickets easily accessible to travel retailers through one intuitive API connection. Our standardized infrastructure with built-in configurable front-end interfaces provides businesses an opportunity to tap into the ticket supply and build a fantastic ticket buying experience for their end customers with a few lines of code only. 

Before joining Tickitto, Nick held senior roles in developing strategic partnerships at IMG Media, Arsenal Football Club, and Electronic Arts. In 2012, Nick moved to eBay's StubHub, where he helped establish its international footprint. His role included taking the lead on evolving StubHub's UK business into operating as a primary platform and distribution channel with face-value tickets, resulting in long-term partnerships with leading sports rights holders and promoters.

"My experience working with major rights holders, promoters, ticketing platforms venues, and software providers, as well as navigating the complexities of the entertainment world, lends itself well to support the expansion of Tickitto across its key markets. I'm delighted to be shaping the business with Dana and team early on", added Nick.

Harriet joins Tickitto after seven years in the sports and entertainment industry, working as Business Development & Partnerships Manager at eBay's StubHub. Her role included working on the project delivery of major sports rights holders and venue partnerships.

"I am very excited to be involved with Tickitto right from the start, and as the business grows, my role will broaden to working closely with the ticketing and travel partners to help establish the business as a leading international ticketing distribution platform," noted Harry.

We are committed to acquiring the very best talent and expertise in the industry, and I am confident that their combined expertise will aid our growth as we embark on the next stage of our journey.
