Festicket Appoints Execs At New LA Office
– Stephanie Rosa.
Festicket’s new VP of Sales in LA.
Festicket announced the appointmentss of Stephanie Rosa and Steve Levy as VP of sales and consultant general manager for North America, respectively.
Steve Levy used to be Virgin Fest’s CMO as well as Insomniac Events’ head of marketing. He’ll bring his “international live event and music business experience, as well as an extensive rolodex, to his new role at Festicket,” according to the announcement.
Stephanie Rosa’s live music career began in 2015, when she founded the online publication Festival Squad. She later crossed over into experiential marketing as founder and strategic partner at Festivate. Amongst other achievements while at Festivate, Rosa set up the partnership between Shiftpod, manufacturer of innovative shelters, and the first Camp EDC in 2018.
Rosa first joined Festicket as business development manager at the end of 2019, just before the world went into lockdown. Her new tasks include “building the growing client base in the US for primary ticketing, travel and cashless solutions, as well as helping to build a team in the newly opened Festicket US headquarters” in LA, the announcement reads.
Rosa, as well as Festicket’s account manager for North America, Cheyanne Powell, will relocate to LA and work at the new offices alongside Levy. More hires are to be expected in the coming weeks and months, when the company will focus on rolling out its end-to-end ticketing platform Event Genius in the States.

Said Levy, “I worked with Festicket pre-pandemic in my roles at Virgin and Insomniac. I was most impressed with their ticketing and payment solutions. I truly believe they are best in class and I am excited to work with [Festicket CEO] Zack Sabban and his team to re-launch here.”
Rosa commented, “I am beyond thrilled to take on the role as VP of Sales, North America for Festicket. Festicket is a company I have watched grow and admired since I discovered it while traveling internationally in 2015. When I saw that the company was expanding to the US, bringing with it the new end-to-end Event Genius offering, I knew I had to be a part of it.”
Yonas Blay, CCO at Festicket, added, “Since joining the business, Stephanie has proved herself time and time again and we’re excited to see her work alongside Steve, whose experience in the industry speaks for itself, to grow our American business from the new LA headquarters. We’ve felt for some time that there is room for disruption in the ticketing sector and with our new end-to-end offering we now feel we’re really well placed to cement our position as a leading player across the US.”
