We round up the latest movements from the ticketing sector and associated industries…

ASM Global has announced that Andy O’Sullivan (pictured) will become chief executive of Olympia London from January 11. 

O’Sullivan previously held the role of venue director of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium between October 2012 and December 2023, acting as a critical team member on the switch between White Hart Lane and the Premier League club’s current home. O’Sullivan has also previously acted as vice-president for IMG’s European Stadium & Arena business and has worked on a number of major projects, including the opening of the new Wembley Stadium in 2007. 

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining such a transformational project at such a critical time, one that’s taking shape right here in London! It will be an incredible new landmark destination for the city, that will help to reshape the way we see and interact with conferencing, exhibitions, and the creative arts industry,” said O’Sullivan. 

“I’m pleased to be joining the Olympia London and ASM Global family to develop what will be a showcase for the world.”

Paul Fitzpatrick has been promoted to chief operating officer at live events agency, Identity. 

Fitzpatrick joined Identity in 2012 and will continue to develop the agency’s international presence. Identity most recently worked with the Mayor of London to deliver the New Year’s Eve fireworks display in the English capital. 

Jamie Snelgrove has revealed that he has stepped into the newly created position of head of business development at Society of London Theatre & UK Theatre. 

SOLT & UK Theatre announced a restructure last month, with roughly 10% of staff leaving while other members of the team were placed into new roles. 

The Royal Albert Hall has officially appointed Matt Todd as director of programming. 

Todd has been the acting director of programming and engagement since October 2022, and was previously the venue’s head of programming.
