Tawn Albright will join Ticketmaster as Executive Vice President. In this Nashville-based role, Albright will lead the growth and expansion of Ticketmaster’s specialized platforms including TicketWeb, which focuses on ticketing clubs and small venues, and Universe, Ticketmaster’s DIY ticketing platform. He will report to Jared Smith, President of Ticketmaster in Los Angeles.

Albright will oversee ticketing solutions for indie music clubs, attractions and branded events, fairs and festivals, organized DIY events and more.

Albright joins Ticketmaster from Leaf Group, a publicly traded diversified media and marketplace company where he was part of the executive team that led the company’s turnaround with a focus on corporate and business development. Prior to Leaf Group, Albright was co-founder and CEO of the award-winning digital agency Rockhouse Partners, which was an early pioneer in providing digital marketing solutions for live entertainment venues and was acquired by eTix in 2014. Prior to Rockhouse, he ran Corporate Development for Ticketmaster and held development and growth roles with companies such as Cox Communications and The Coca-Cola Company.

“Tawn is another unique addition to our leadership team. He has a fantastic background with a proven record of leveraging technology to bring fresh product and service solutions to market in both ecommerce and enterprise software. There’s no doubt he will help us accelerate an area of our business that is already growing at an impressive rate,” said Smith.

“As we all keep hearing, we now live in an experiential economy where people are yearning for live events. Concerts, comedy shows, cultural fairs, festivals and attractions are more popular than ever before,” said Albright. “Our unique ability to complement our portfolio of specialized tools and software with the unparalleled scale and expertise of Ticketmaster is what excites me the most about joining the team.”
