StubHub’s new new head of international

As StubHub continues to expand worldwide, the company appointed Miguel Giribet Giral as its new head of international.
Giral will be based in Madrid and oversee the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions. The role he will fill had previously been handled on an interim basis by StubHub International CFO Lauren St. Clair and head of business development Rafa Ortiz.
Giral joins Stubhub from international online fashion outlet Privalia, where he served as chief commercial officer and held multiple general manager roles during his eight-year tenure. Prior to Privalia, Giral worked in business consulting; he began his career at Siemens VDO. Giral holds an MBA from IESE.
Owned by eBay, StubHub offers tickets to more than 10 million sports, music and theater events across 40 countries. According to the company, it sells a ticket worldwide every 1.3 seconds.
“We are delighted that Miguel is joining the StubHub team,” said Stubhub president Sukhinder Singh  Cassidy. “His experience and drive will ensure we continue to lead the industry in helping fans connect to events, safely and securely. Our international business shows the biggest growth potential, especially as the live events market itself is becoming more international. Our customers are increasingly prepared to travel across borders to attend an event they want, from an NFL game in London to an Anthony Joshua fight in New York.”
Giral commented: “I have long admired StubHub’s ability to blend innovation and technology with a complete focus on creating a fan-first experience for millions of customers. We have a great team, world-leading partners and an exciting story to tell. It is going to be a hugely exciting time for StubHub in Europe and across the rest of the world.”
