Stephanie Streeter and Shaun Eidson join AXS from Eventbrite

Former Eventbrite execs Shaun Eidson and Stephanie Streeter have joined AXS as vice president of sales for music and senior director of sales for music, respectively, the ticketing company announced today (Aug. 21). 

Eidson will develop and manage engagements with music venues, promoters, and artists to implement the AXS platform in markets around the world. 

With a background that spans e-commerce, artist relations, and business development coupled with previous experience at Eventbrite Music and StubHub, Eidson is uniquely positioned to fuel further growth in the AXS music verticals. 

Streeter most recently helped lead the migration of Ticketfly clients over to the Eventbrite platform. During her time with Eventbrite Music, she also was responsible for developing and executing strategic partnerships with music festivals, venues, and promoters. 

She will continue in a similar capacity at AXS in the newly created Senior Director role. The hires reflect an enhanced focus by AXS on its music segment and the growth of the overall business as the company continues to expand its platform, according to a statement. 

“The AXS platform is pushing the pace of innovation for the music industry at every level, from clubs and theaters to arenas, and we continue to add partners that are looking for more sophisticated and robust tools to help grow their businesses,” says Rob Sine, Chief Revenue Officer for AXS. 

“Shaun and Stephanie bring deep knowledge of what artists and venues require from their ticketing partner to continue to serve the ever-evolving needs of artists, promoters, and fans and we are thrilled to have them join the AXS team.” 

Both will report to Sine with focus on establishing ticketing partnerships with music organizations at all levels. Eidson and Streeter’s appointment follows the recent announcement of Taylor Kern as Vice President of Sales for Sports.

Updated 8/21/19 5:39 p.m.: A source with knowledge of the situation noted that neither Eidson, who left Eventbrite at the end of 2016 and worked as a sales rep, nor Streeter, who worked as a senior sales rep, were high level Eventbrite executives.
