Australian ticketing firm Oztix has acquired event technology platform PleezPay, in addition to announcing several internal staffing changes.

Simon Docherty, general manager of PleezPay, said: “I was delighted that Oztix was able to purchase the platform and be the ones to take it to its next stage. The experience, marketing expertise, and security of Oztix is a real positive for the continuing growth of PleezPay.

“I’ve always admired the business the Oztix team has built in the competitive environment of event ticketing, as well as the overall company culture that is an integral element of their success. I’m looking forward to the PleezPay platform being a key part of the Oztix family into the future.”

Oztix has also announced several major internal staffing changes, including the appointment of Steve Tassone as general manager, Jim Cunningham as national operations manager, Amy Gates as NSW and ACT business development manager and Dave McCarthy as digital campaign specialist.

Tassone said: “It’s hard to describe the excitement I feel about Oztix and its immense potential.”

“Ticketmaster’s recent acquisition of Moshtix means that Oztix is now Australia’s premier independent ticketing company. We see this as a huge opportunity for growth and I look forward to preparing the business for further expansion and scale.”
