StubHub has named Miguel Giribet Giral as its new head of international.

The position, which is based out of Madrid, Spain, will see the executive lead StubHub’s growth outside the US.

Giribet previously worked as chief commercial officer for fashion ecommerce business Privalia.

StubHub president Sukhinder Singh Cassidy said: “We are delighted that Miguel is joining the StubHub team. His experience and drive will ensure we continue to lead the industry in helping fans connect to events, safely and securely.

“Our international business shows the biggest growth potential, especially as the live events market itself is becoming more international. Our customers are increasingly prepared to travel across borders to attend an event they want, from an NFL game in London to an Anthony Joshua fight in New York.”

StubHub entered the Spanish market in 2016 after it acquired Ticketbis, which had a strong foothold in southern Europe, Latin America and Asia.

“I have long admired StubHub’s ability to blend innovation and technology with a complete focus on creating a fan-first experience for millions of customers,” said Giribit. “We have a great team, world-leading partners and an exciting story to tell. It is going to be a hugely exciting time for StubHub in Europe and across the rest of the world.”
