TEG names industry veteran Glen Rainsbury as Ticketek’s new GM
TEG has appointed Glen Rainsbury as general manager of Ticketek in Australia and New Zealand, also revealing that Lee Jones will take on the newly created role of ticketing solutions director.
Both Rainsbury and Jones will report to Cameron Hoy, TEG’s managing director of ticketing and chief commercial officer, who is responsible for TEG’s worldwide ticketing operations.
Rainsbury, who will be based in Melbourne, brings a wealth of industry experience spanning more than two decades across ticketing, venues and promotion.
In recent years he has held senior roles with both Live Nation and Frontier Touring, and in 2020 helped the Live Entertainment Industry Forum (LEIF) to coordinate and deliver industry guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hoy said Rainsbury’s CV gives him a 360-degree view of the live entertainment sector.
“It makes him a great fit for this new role, which is key to Ticketek’s strategy to ensure we continue to lead the industry with an enhanced operated model as our industry emerges from COVID-19.
“I am thrilled that Lee is leading our Ticketing Solutions team to ensure the full breadth of Ticketek’s technology and capability is deployed and leveraged for the benefit of our partners globally. Lee’s experience in ticketing strategy and solution design is unequalled in our industry.”
