Pennsylvania’s PPL Center and Lehigh Valley Phantoms hockey team have made a series of appointments to bolster their ticketing team.
Richard Lintker has been promoted to the role of vice-president of ticketing and marketing for the 8,500-capacity arena and American Hockey League team.
Lintker joined the Phantoms, the Philadelphia Flyers’ primary feeder team, in 2020 after six years in senior positions at Monumental Sports & Entertainment in Washington DC.
Trevor Herrick has been promoted to senior director of ticket sales, while Carli Faust has been promoted to director of sports ticket operations and retention.
Herrick was previously director of ticket sales having also held group sales and other roles since joining the team in 2013.
Faust joined the Phantoms last year after holding ticketing and corporate roles at Quad City Mallards Hockey, Florida Everblades and Tulsa Oilers.
Lintker said: “We are happy to announce the promotions of Trevor Herrick to Sr. Director of Ticket Sales for the PPL Center & Lehigh Valley Phantoms, as well as Carli Faust as Director of Sports Ticket Operations & Retention. They both have phenomenal experience within varying levels of professional hockey, and as I transition to overseeing overall business operations, primarily on the marketing side, we look forward to having these two to bring new bright ideas and execution on the ticketing side of things for the Phantoms hockey team, and all arena events.”
The Phantoms’ 2022-23 season starts this coming weekend with a game against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
