Charlie’s experience will be used to ensure the Citizen Ticket platform remains a leading offering in the marketplace, meeting the needs of event organisers and consumers alike.

Oliver has a wealth of ticketing and events experience from previous roles with Ticketline and WeGotTickets and will be working closely with Philip and the sales team to target sports and culture opportunities.
Last year, Citizen Ticket invested heavily in the ticketing platform with the introduction of its integrated livestreaming service during lockdown. The evolution and enhancement of the platform was the first of many new features to be introduced. Colin Palmer, Chief Technology Officer at Citizen Ticket intends to grow his team over the next couple of years in order to match resource with the needs of the business. Josh Hart has come onboard as an App Developer having successfully graduated from the Founders and Coders full stack web development bootcamp.
Commenting on the team expansion, Citizen Ticket CEO, Harry Boisseau said:
“These appointments complete our latest recruitment phase and ensure we can hit the ground running in 2021. Colin has several important development projects for the platform, which will be supported by Phil and the team as they continue to promote hybrid events, as well as the return of live opportunities too.
“It is also great to have Charlie contributing to the future shape and direction of the business having acquired so much insight, from establishing his own tech business to working with leading telecommunication experts, Commsworld.”
