Ticket resale platform StubHub International today announced that Dan Mucha has joined as Chief Executive Officer.
Mucha will be responsible for “developing best-in-class marketplaces and will spearhead plans around customer experience, customer trust and quality supply,” according to the press release announcing his appointment.
Mucha joins from Europe’s leading online personalization business Photobox Group, where he was CEO. Prior to Photobox Group, Mucha held senior operating roles at Amazon and MSNBC, and, earlier in his career, was a consultant at McKinsey & Company.
Atle Skalleberg, Operating Partner StubHub International investor Digital Fuel Capital, commented, “We are thrilled to welcome Dan to the team. As StubHub International continues to grow, he will bring strategic and customer-centric leadership. We are confident that he will lead an engaged team in building the best marketplace for buying and selling international event experiences.”
Mucha added, “StubHub International is more relevant than ever as we see the world returning to live event experiences. I’m excited to join a customer obsessed business with massive growth potential and a team that is passionate about our purpose: to connect people to inspiring live event experiences. I look forward to building on the team’s progress to offer the best service to global buyers and sellers of tickets to live event experiences.”
StubHub International was newly established following CMA UK’s inquiry into the merger of Viagogo and StubHub. It was determined that StubHub’s international entities (all entities except those in the USA and Canada) were to be divested and made independent from StubHub and Viagogo. StubHub International consists of businesses in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, and other international markets. Digital Fuel Capital is the Boston-based investment firm that acquired StubHub’s international business last year.
