LN Taps Hubbard For Ticketing

Nathan Hubbard has been upped to CEO of Live Nation’s ticketing unit, where he will lead the company in its creation of a new concert ticketing company as it prepares to go solo with ticketing operations at the end of the year.

Hubbard previously served as CEO of Musictoday, which Live Nation acquired in 2006, before being appointed president of ticketing at LN.

Other members of the LN ticketing division management team include chief information officer Joe Manna, executive VP of business development and strategy Greg Bettinelli and executive VP of LiveNation.com, Noah Maffitt.

Following months of negotiations, Live Nation and Ticketmaster were unable to come to terms regarding a contract renewal and announced the split last summer.
