Ticketmaster President Sean Moriarty Resigns

ticketmaster21With Ticketmaster Entertainment and Live Nation recently announcing plans to merge, Ticketmaster has announced that President/CEO Sean Moriarty has resigned, effective March 24. Moriarty has also resigned from the company’s board of directors. His role at the company has been uncertain since last November when Ticketmaster acquired a controlling interest in Irving Azoff’s Front Line Management. Azoff now serves as CEO of both Ticketmaster and Front Line. During Moriarty’s reign, Ticketmaster expanded the scope of its operations through acquisitions of companies including TicketsNow and Emma Entertainment and strategic investments in businesses such as iLike and Echo Music. Moriarty was part of the original Citysearch technology team and served as Director of Internet Systems for Citysearch, Ticketmaster’s predecessor. In 2005, he became Ticketmaster’s President and COO, rising to Chief Executive Officer in 2007. “I’ll always be grateful for my time spent at Ticketmaster with its truly outstanding people and I wish the company every success in the future,” Moriarty said.
