NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TickPick, the no-fee ticket marketplace that is transforming the industry, announced today it has hired ticketing and sports management expert Tim Miller to the position of Head of Strategic Partnerships and Planning in order to spearhead TickPick's growth and expansion, both nationally and internationally. Miller marks TickPick's most senior level hire in the company's history.

Miller joins TickPick after serving as Vice President of Sales and Service at Qcue, and comes armed with senior contacts in major U.S. sports leagues and entertainment companies including the NFL, MLB, NHL and Feld Entertainment. He'll also look deeper into TickPick's consumer and partner data to ensure the company is adjusting to those metrics in a way that ensures market share growth.

At Qcue, Miller developed partnerships for the company's dynamic pricing software for sports and entertainment tickets, working with various U.S. sports leagues, ticketing companies, as well as ticketing systems and resale exchanges globally. He managed the firm's work with the largest brokers in North America in offering Qcue's secondary market "Resale Pricing Tool" to bring more efficiency to ticketing.

Miller's hiring comes on the heels of two recent announcements from TickPick. The company just announced a partnership with legendary wrestler Ric Flair, and in late July acquired Rukkus, an advanced ticket inventory aggregator that boasts amazing 360-degree seat view technology. This acquisition follows TickPick's purchase in May of secondary marketplace Razorgator, gaining access to its customer base of approximately one million active users.

"I'm thrilled to join TickPick on its journey to becoming the leading ticket marketplace," said Miller. "The company has the ideal blend of intelligent and highly-capable executive management and forward-thinking technology. My multi-faceted role will include leveraging my expertise in pricing dynamics, a trend that will likely spread throughout the industry and greatly impact ticketing firms. I'll also call upon my sports and entertainment industry contacts to establish partnerships that will help us prepare for and capitalize on the coming industry changes. I'm excited to move the company into its planned international expansion as well, which will expose a global audience to TickPick's attractive no-fee consumer model."

Miller also previously serviced as CEO for Athlete Management Australia, where he specialized in career development, athlete marketing and financial services. Before that, he's held various marketing and sales roles for firms in London and Australia that include Capstone Hospitality, Green Room Sports, Wasserman Media Group and SFX Sports Group.

"Within sports and entertainment ticketing, the writing's on the wall in terms of the rise of dynamic pricing and inventory management," said Brett Goldberg, co-founder and co-CEO of TickPick. "The industry and ticketing inventory is changing, and we need to keep evolving in order to stay ahead. We've brought Tim into this senior and central role because he'll guide us on where the market is going over the next several years. Tim will help us build off partnerships such as our recent Ric Flair arrangement and strategic acquisitions like Razorgator and Rukkus. He has the industry connections across both sports leagues and entertainment venues that will help us create integral partners for our business. The future for TickPick has never been brighter, and I look forward to working hand-in-hand with Tim to push our business to new heights in the U.S. and abroad."
