SecuTix, the global provider of a ticketing engagement platform for the sports, culture and leisure industries, has announced a new UK and Ireland team as it looks to expand its presence across Europe. This comes on the back of the company’s recent appointment as the ticketing partner of Saracens rugby club.
David Hornby joins as UK and Ireland managing director with the remit to establish SecuTix as the leading white-label player in the UK ticketing market. As the former commercial director of Visit London and most recently strategic consultant to the likes of The O2, Formula 1 and Red Bull, David brings significant experience in growing businesses and an extensive network in the major events, entertainment and sports sector, which he will put to good use opening doors for SecuTix.
Richard Hilton, former ticketing and hospitality solutions manager at UEFA, has been appointed to the role of SecuTix head of customer success for UK and Ireland. At UEFA, Hilton was a client of SecuTix and applied the software to maximize hospitality and sponsorship opportunities for Euro 2016. Hilton will use his first-hand experience of the software to ensure UK partners make best use of the technology to meet their business objectives. Prior to his role at UEFA, he was at Ticketmaster for eight years.
