Maria O’Connor, Managing Director of Ticketmaster Australia and New Zealand, said:

“Like our colleagues in the Northern Hemisphere we are building a team here that can help an artist from the very start of their careers when they hit the clubs, and grow with them all the way to theatres, arenas and stadiums. Our Artist Services team will be rolling out our fan-first products such as Verified Fan, which are redefining the ticket buying experience and giving artists greater control.”
