Mackenzie Named EventBooking President

Event software provider EventBooking has hired an international veteran to grow the company’s global presence.

Steve Mackenzie, most recently of etouches, brings experience with numerous companies to the role of president, having worked with offices in Australia, Hong Kong, China, the United Kingdom, the U.S. and his native New Zealand.

Mackenzie will work alongside founder and CEO John Platillero to develop a new generation of core software products, and will officially begin May 1.

“The marketplace really needs a fresh web-based product that combines the functionality with the customer service EventBooking has become known for delivering,” Mackenzie said. “Too many tech companies fail to recognize that we really must be service providers first, not simply a software provider.”

EventBooking works with more than 700 venues around world to facilitate space scheduling, sales and event coordination.
