August 8, 2011

Hamish Anderson is to take on the role of News Ticketing's new marketing manager.

In this role, Hamish will be responsible for developing and managing all marketing and brand activities for News Ticketing and its brands - Moshtix and Foxtix.

Anderson who was previously a Foxtix senior account manager responsible for Foxtix's flagship client - The Formula One Australian Grand Prix and Motorcycle Grand Prix, will report into News Ticketing Chief Executive Adam McArthur.

Announcing the appointment, McArthur stated said that as News Ticketing continues its aggressive growth in the market, there became an increased need to create the new role.

"The Australian ticketing industry is fast developing and innovating as it meets the ever changing demands of consumers and the entertainment industry.

"Moshtix is the leading ticketing provider for Australian festivals and while they hold this dominant position, we are seeing a shift in consumer demand for festivals.

"Foxtix launched successfully into market and our priority now is to continue setting the Foxtix services apart from its competitors.

"Hamish has extensive ticketing experience and astute knowledge of the ticketing industry, promoters and venue managers which makes him the perfect candidate for this new role.

"In this new role, Hamish will focus on managing and defining each of Moshtix and Foxtix brands and service and taking it out to market. I am glad to be working with him in this capacity as we look to continue our aggressive growth plans for News Ticketing."

Anderson added "when I joined News Ticketing at the beginning of this year, I was introduced to incredible brands, a passionate team and at a very exciting time. I am very much looking forward to stepping into this new role as marketing manager and building on the current success of Moshtix and Foxtix."

Prior to joining Foxtix, Anderson worked at Ticketmaster where he spent five years working for the company in New Zealand and Australia and managed the company's largest client, Ethihad Stadium.

Also joining News Ticketing's marketing team in the role as marketing communications manager will be Megan Thomas who will and be responsible for managing the all News Ticketing's promotional channels and affiliate relationships.

Anderson's role in managing The Formula One Australian Grand Prix and Motorcycle Grand Prix account will be assumed by Haley Keays who joined Foxtix's account management team last year.
