Sydney-based live entertainment and ticketing firm, TEG has today announced their appointment of industry veteran Glen Rainsbury as General Manager, Ticketek - Australia and New Zealand.

TEG has also announced that Lee Jones will take on the newly created role of Director – Ticketing Solutions.

Both Rainsbury and Jones will report to Cameron Hoy, Managing Director-Ticketing and Chief Commercial Officer, who is responsible for TEG’s worldwide ticketing operations.

Rainsbury, who will be based in Melbourne, brings a wealth of industry experience spanning more than two decades across Ticketing, Venues and Promotion. He has held senior positions across multiple sectors of the industry including managing ticketing for the Chelsea Flower Show, Event Manager at Brisbane Entertainment Centre and The Gabba, and Director – Venue Sales at Marvel Stadium (formerly Etihad Stadium).

In recent years Rainsbury has held senior roles with both Live Nation and Frontier Touring Company and in 2020 helped the Live Entertainment Industry Forum (LEIF) to coordinate and deliver extensive industry guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

On Rainsbury’s appointment, Hoy notes “Glen’s CV gives him a 360-degree view of the live entertainment sector. It makes him a great fit for this new role, which is key to Ticketek’s strategy to ensure we continue to lead the industry with an enhanced operated model as our industry emerges from COVID-19.

“I am thrilled that Lee is leading our Ticketing Solutions team to ensure the full breadth of Ticketek’s technology and capability is deployed and leveraged for the benefit of our partners globally. Lee’s experience in ticketing strategy and solution design is unequalled in our industry.”

TEG Chief Executive, Geoff Jones welcomed Rainsbury and congratulated Jones, saying “Glen’s extensive experience, dedication and attention to detail make him a great addition to Cam’s Team as we continue to roll out TEG’s integrated model,” while “Lee’s commitment to delivering excellence to our Partners is second to none, we are thrilled she is stepping into this vital new role.”
