Viagogo Carries On Recruiting

Viagogo, one of Europe’s leading secondary ticketing companies, has announced the appointment of two new members to its advisory board.

Alex Zubillaga, formerly of Warner Music Group, and David Goldberg, previously of Yahoo Music, join the company as it continues to sign ground-breaking exclusive resale ticketing deals for festivals including Reading, Leeds, Latitude and Isle of Wight and acts such as Madonna, James Blunt, Linkin Park and Peter Gabriel.

Zubillaga worked as executive vice president for strategy and business development at Warner Music Group from 2005 to 2008, where he was instrumental in driving the company’s music strategy.

Goldberg co-founded LAUNCH Media Inc. in 1994, which was dedicated to delivering music and music-related content online. He then led the company through its acquisition by Yahoo in 2001.

Upon joining Yahoo, Goldberg served as vice president and general manger, leading the company’s global music operations and building into one of the Internet’s major music destinations.

Viagogo chief exec Eric Baker said his business will use “their passion and knowledge” to strengthen what the company can offer to the millions of people looking to buy tickets in a safe, secure and guaranteed way.
