Mobile-focused ticket platform SeatGeek has strengthened its management team through the appointment of Nick Carey, who will take up the role of senior director of US account management.
Carey fills the role and is coming from Wells Fargo where he spent almost a decade, most recently as the head of sponsorships and brand engagement.
During his time at Wells Fargo, Carey looked after the bank’s sports and entertainment sponsorship portfolio, which included the likes of the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers and the Wells Fargo Championship PGA Tour event.
Carey will report to SeatGeek’s global head of sales and account management Michael McCabe. He will be responsible for overseeing all rights holder clients including SeatGeek’s newest clients in the NHL and on Broadway.
SeatGeek recently signed a deal with its first NHL partner, the Flyers, as well as the Wells Fargo Center, where the team plays its home games.
Fans can use SeatGeek to purchase tickets for a Flyers game across the 2021-22 season, with the platform being the official ticket exchange marketplace for the team and the arena.
While the Flyers partnership was SeatGeek’s first in the NHL, the platform already boasts partnerships with NFL teams such as the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints. In the NBA, SeatGeek is partnered with the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers, as well as being the official ticketing partner of Major League Soccer.
English Premier League giants Liverpool and Manchester City are also partnered with SeatGeek.
Carey will begin his new role on October 11.
