See Tickets has expanded its operations in the US by opening a new office in Nashville, Tennessee.
The ticketing company has tripled its business in the US since its acquisition of Flavorous in 2016, with the opening of its new offices in the country’s music epicentre marking its 15th in the US.
Rob Wilmshurst, See Tickets global chief executive, said: “We remain opportunistic where and when we expand. The US is doing great business and has found a rich seam in indie venues and festivals.”
Chris Donohue, See Tickets vice-president of business strategy and partnerships for North America, will open the Nashville office and split his time assisting with growth and product development for the company’s growing operations in North America.
During Donohue’s 20-year career in the industry, he has built up music, strategic partnerships, business development and emerging technology experience. Prior to joining See Tickets, he served as chief operating officer of video monetisation platform Vydia.
Boris Patronoff, chief executive at See Tickets North America, added: “We are fortunate to have someone of Chris’s tremendous experience and insight to open our Nashville office. In Nashville, Chris will build on our existing relationships and provide the right care to our clients.”
The ticketing firm sold more than 20 million tickets in 2018 for music, sporting and cultural events, with thousands of clients across North America and Europe, including country and roots music festivals Countryfest, Americanafest, Gulf Coast Jam and many more. The company opened its first US office in Los Angeles in 2014.
