Protecht, the insurance technology provider for ticketing platforms, has promoted Beau Jeppesen to the new role of chief product officer.

Jeppesen joined the company, which was known as TicketGuardian until April, three years ago.

He previously served in management positions at ShopGuarantee, Merchant Defense and Wells Fargo.

“Beau has been crucial to our success to date. With his vast knowledge of the business side of Protecht, I could not be more excited to hand over the keys of product to him,” Protecht chief executive and founder Bryan Derbyshire said.

“Our technology team has always been very strong technically. Pairing that talent with Beau’s leadership and complete business understanding, I’m confident we will not only continue to produce the industry’s best technology, but also continue earning awards for product innovation.”

Protecht’s products offer control over inventory, additional lines of revenue and fraud prevention tools.

The company’s FanShield, TourShield, EventShield, RegShield and FraudGuardian technologies enable attendees and organisers to insure tickets, registrations and events across sport, music and entertainment.

So far this year, the company has linked up with the likes of Learfield, Paciolan, Spectra and Tickets.com.
