Looking to develop what it calls “immense growth opportunities”, global ticketing business Ticketmaster has appointed Jim Kotsonis to the newly created role of Regional Vice President, Ticketmaster Asia Pacific (APAC).

In this role, Kotsonis will have direct oversight of operations across the region including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan.

Kotsonis brings a wealth of experience to the position, having just celebrated his 20th year with Ticketmaster. In this time, he has served in various finance and operations roles across the business, most recently having overall responsibility for Australia and New Zealand.

Commenting on the appointment, Mark Yovich, Ticketmaster’s Global President, stated “Jim is a stalwart of Ticketmaster, he knows the business inside out. It is great to have him at the helm of our APAC region, where no doubt he will do a fantastic job of leading the experienced and passionate local team.”

As part of the new APAC leadership structure, Anjelica Devoe will assume the role of General Manager - New Zealand and report to Kotsonis.

Devoe is expected to provide a unique perspective leading Ticketmaster’s New Zealand business having served in various roles at both Ticketmaster and Moshtix, as well as her experience working with the All Blacks Tours and FIFA tournaments.

Looking forward to his new role, Kotsonis advised “the APAC region represents tremendous opportunities for Ticketmaster to continue its global expansion. I’m really excited to be in a position to formally lead the region, especially as we enter a new era of live with fan demand greater than ever before.”
