Silverstone to lead Eventbrite’s operations in Australia


US TICKETING firm Eventbrite has appointed its first general manager for Australia, Phil Silverstone.

Silverstone will be responsible for leading and expanding Eventbrite’s Australian operations and for driving the company’s local strategy as it pushes for a bigger slice of Australia’s A$270 million (US$201 million) ticketing industry.

He most recently spent 16 years in financial services with GE Capital.

His appointment comes as the local arm of the company enters into a new phase of growth and capitalises on strong traction the company has seen since launching its Asia-Pacific office in Melbourne in March 2014.
