Tom Giles has joined Nashville-based ticketing tech company Project Admission as co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer.
Giles most recently served at Fullscreen following the acquisition of StageBloc. In his new role at Project Admission, he will be responsible for strategy across product and the overall business. In 2013, Giles founded and led the data focused, direct-to-fan platform StageBloc. Providing comprehensive, actionable fan insights and commerce capabilities, StageBloc was acquired by leading multi-channel network Fullscreen in 2015, itself acquired by AT&T in late 2018 as part of the larger Otter Media portfolio.
“What we’re doing at Project Admission requires perspective from every stakeholder in ticketing,” says Project Admission Co-founder Stephen Glicken. “Which is why we are excited to have Tom join us as Chief Strategy Officer. He brings a unique set of eyes on the problems we’re solving, especially when it comes to audience analytics and the monetization of data for content creators like artists and sports
“I’m excited to join such an incredible team solving a real problem with an elegant, powerful solution,” says Giles. “The technology Project Admission has put together is impressive, and the opportunity they’ve unlocked is massive.”
Joining Glicken, co-founder Jordan Stone and Giles on the executive team is Josh Baron, a Songkick alum and co-author of the noted book Ticket Masters: The Rise of the Concert Industry and How the Public Got Scalped. Baron was announced today as Project Admission’s Head of Business Development.
The company also revealed its initial advisory board which includes Paul Korzilius, SVP of the Arena Alliance run by Oak View Group and longtime manager of Bon Jovi; Joe Kustelski, Cofounder of Chalkline Sports and former Etix CEO; and TicketManager co-founder and CEO Tony Knopp, among others.
