Ticketing firm The Ticket Factory has appointed Richard Howle as its Director Of Ticketing, which seems like a good thing for a ticketing firm – not to mention an actual ticket factory – to have.

“I am THRILLED to join The Ticket Factory and to bring my experience of running in-house ticketing operations to the role”, says Howle. “It is a company I have long admired with a well-deserved reputation for delivering excellence”.

You see how Howle mentioned his experience of running “in-house ticketing operations” just there? Well, that was in his previous job as Commercial Director of Really Useful Theatres, a position he held for nearly five years.

Howle goes on: “I am looking forward to building The Ticket Factory brand at this pivotal point in the company’s history, having just celebrated its tenth anniversary. Over the past decade, The Ticket Factory has established itself as an industry challenger in a highly competitive, fast-moving industry and has an exciting future ahead”.

The Ticket Factory is owned by Birmingham-based venue operator the NEC Group, whose MD Phil Mead adds: “Richard’s appointment will serve to further strengthen the offering of The Ticket Factory in an increasingly competitive marketplace. It has a unique partnership with the NEC Group Arenas, and with Richard’s direction, the businesses will be able to work even closer together to provide a seamless experience for clients and customers alike”.
