Spektrix, the ticketing and box office management software developer, has hired three new senior executives to support its growth in the UK and US markets.

Former comparethemarket.com executive Dan Bass has been employed as the new director of engineering, bringing 16 years’ experience in B2B- and consumer-facing technology.

Bass will be responsible for building the development team, while also making Spektrix more resilient software in the Cloud.

Alice Young joins Spektrix as its new UK managing director after 11 years working with Trinity College London as head of arts programmes. She brings more than 20 years of experience in the UK arts industry after most recently acting as head of drama for the international awarding body, Arts Awards.

In her new role, Young will be responsible for growing the UK business and ensuring current clients continue to receive quality support.

Spektrix has also hired Manjinder Johal as its new finance director, bringing in more than 20 years of experience to oversee financial operations at the company with a focus on strategic planning for stable growth.

Johal left her role at the charitable education trust Future Academies, where she worked to improve operational efficiency and oversaw the implementation of key financial IT systems.

“With the addition of Alice, Dan and Manjinder, Spektrix is bringing crucial experience into the business and seasoned professionals at the top of their game,” said Michael Nabarro, chief executive and co-founder of Spektrix.

“They each have proven capabilities ideally suited to lead us through a period of substantial growth, as we deliver the most complete ticket sales and marketing solution to the arts and entertainment sector.”

With more than 40 client wins in 2016, Spektrix’s client base now includes more than 290 arts and entertainment organisations in the UKI and North America.

Ticket sales through the cloud-based Spektrix system grew to more than 16 million in 2016 from 11.5 million the previous year.
