Executive Recruiter Millennium Search Hired To Place Director of Digital Sales For SeatGeek
“We discovered Millennium Search participating in conversations on Quora,” said SeatGeek Co-Founder Russ D’Souza. “We thought it was very smart of them to be hanging around where entrepreneurs are looking for resources.”
Launched in 2009, SeatGeek searches the inventory of all the web’s major secondary ticket sites and aggregates all available tickets in one place. The company was a finalist at TechCrunch 50 in 2009 and was named to PC Magazine’s list of the Top 100 Websites of 2010. SeatGeek currently employs 14 people.
“SeatGeek is not just a place to do ticket transactions,” D’Souza said. “If someone is looking for entertainment options but doesn’t know what to attend, we can make the best recommendations. With that in mind, we are looking to add significant revenue to the site through advertising deals, so the new digital sales director is a key role for us. The goal is to double our ad revenues.”
“We’re excited about finding the ideal candidate for SeatGeek,” said Millennium Search CEO Amish Shah. “We have the right experience and a deep pool of qualified candidates within our network, and we’re confident we will fill this sales position quickly with an A-player. SeatGeek has the right combination of management, product offerings and funding that we like to see in clients we support.”
Millennium Search Senior Partner Sandy Bleich is handling this search for the firm.
