Industry experts Shaun Eidson and Stephanie Streeter join AXS to expand the ticketing platform’s music sector
By Anna Grace on 21 Aug 2019
AEG ticketing partner AXS has added two former Eventbrite executives to its sales team, as the company continues to grow its music sector.
Shaun Eidson joins the team as vice president of sales for music and Stephanie Streeter takes on the role of senior director of sales for music.
Combined, the new hires have more than two decades worth of industry experience across business development, sales and strategic partnerships.
Having previously worked at fellow ticketing companies Eventbrite and StubHub, Eidson will develop and manage engagements with music venues, promoters and artists to implement the AXS platform in international markets.
Streeter, who helped lead the migration of Ticketfly clients over to the Eventbrite platform, will develop partnerships with music festivals, venues and promoters in her newly created role at AXS.
“Shaun and Stephanie bring deep knowledge of what artists and venues require from their ticketing partner”
Eventbrite now has fewer than 100 clients left to migrate, according to a recent Q2 financial report.
“The AXS platform is pushing the pace of innovation for the music industry at every level, from clubs and theatres to arenas, and we continue to add partners that are looking for more sophisticated and robust tools to help grow their businesses,” says Rob Sine, chief revenue officer for AXS, who both Streeter and Eidson will report to.
“Shaun and Stephanie bring deep knowledge of what artists and venues require from their ticketing partner to continue to serve the ever-evolving needs of artists, promoters, and fans and we are thrilled to have them join the AXS team.”
AXS launched its official price-capped resale platform at AEG-owned London arenas the O2 (20,000-cap.) and the SSE Arena (12,500) earlier this year.
