Ticketing search engine TickX has a new chairman: Laurence Marlor, previously the co-founder of Rentalcars·com. The company says he has joined to guide TickX’s international growth, for a service that taps more than 100 other ticketing platforms to help people find tickets for music concerts and festivals, as well as theatre, comedy and cinemas.
Marlor joins the year after TickX raised a £3m funding round, which it says has been used to grow its team “considerably” as well as developing its platform.
The company previously said that more than 2.5 million people used TickX in 2018, but that it expects this to double to five million in 2019 “We are delighted to welcome Laurence as our new chairman. His vast experience building some of the world’s largest consumer-facing brands in the travel industry will be invaluable as we step up our international growth,” said CEO Steve Pearce in a statement.
