TEG appoints Matthew Donazzan as head of strategy, mergers and acquisitions
TEG has announced the appointment of corporate finance executive Matthew Donazzan to the newly created role, Director of Strategy and M&A.
In his new role Donazzan will lead a team charged with assisting TEG's Chief Executive and Board in determining and executing the global live entertainment, ticketing and technology business’s key strategic projects.
He will also oversee TEG's mergers and acquisitions program, including target identification and prioritisation, stakeholder coordination, due diligence, execution and integration.
Donazzan (pictured) was previously an Executive Director covering private equity clients at Goldman Sachs, where he played an instrumental role in the sale of TEG to its new owner Silver Lake Partners in 2019.
Advising that Donazzan’s strategic acumen would be a great asset to the company as it continues its long-term growth and expansion plans, TEG Chief Executive, Geoff Jones stated “we were deeply impressed by Matt during our sale to Silver Lake and it is a testament to his impeccable pedigree that our new partners and owners have backed us in hiring him to the TEG Senior Leadership Team.
“Matt has a sharp, creative and commercial way of thinking that makes him a great fit as we press on with long-term plans to grow at home in Australia and internationally. We are delighted to welcome him to TEG.”
Welcoming his appointment Donazzan commented “I am thrilled to have joined Geoff and the team at TEG, which has grown into a fantastic company with even greater long-term potential for growth. I am looking forward to working with Geoff and the team to further TEG’s success and help to shape its future.”
Donazzan, who is based in Sydney, has previously worked at UBS Investment Bank and KPMG Corporate Finance, as well as being the co-founder of a number of start-ups including One Cent Flights and Cold Drip Beverages.
