Online and mobile ticketing firm Ticketscript has announced the appointment of former HMV man Jason Legg to the role of Head Of Sales UK. Legg was a long-time exec at HMV, initially working in marketing and PR roles before moving into live and ticketing after the music retailer entered those markets via its partnership with and subsequent acquisition of the MAMA Group.

Confirming his new role, Legg told CMU: “I’m really chuffed to be joining ticketscript as they firmly establish themselves in the UK. Their innovative and ambitious plans for the UK event market made it an obvious target for an exciting next role. I hope I can fully exploit my experience and add value to ticketscript’s mission”.

Meanwhile Ticketscript CEO Frans Jonker added: “We are delighted to welcome Jason to the Ticketscript team. Not only will he bring extensive industry experience, but his knowledge of the UK events and ticketing market will enable us to continue to expand our market share in the United Kingdom”.
