Primary ticket outlet has taken on two new account managers at the company’s Preston headquarters.

The recruitment of Amy Horsfield and Rob Casson is the latest in a series of appointments which has seen the ticket agency’s account management team and customer service department triple since the start of 2013.

The company is relocating to its new offices in Longridge as it looks to expand.

Ticketing director Rich Dyer said: “We’ve now got over 35,000 event promoters regularly using Skiddle, so it’s really important we put the right people in place to support them.

“I’m confident Amy and Rob bring the kind of experience and credibility a promoter would expect from an account manager at Skiddle.

“Amy Horsfield has substantial experience in both account management and business
development roles, having honed her skills in a number of sectors outside events.

“She brings a breadth of corporate account management experience to the table which will be increasingly important as Skiddle’s client base evolves to encompass a more diverse range of events.”

Rob Casson has been at the epicentre of underground culture since 2005, both as a seasoned DJ and as the leading light behind the popular clubbing brand Freeze. He has also organised events at sites traditionally considered off-limit, such as ecclesiastical sites and English Heritage sites.

Skiddle’s Head of Client Accounts Margaret Tinsley said of the appointments: “Although Skiddle is primarily a self-service offering, we recognise that many event promoters need additional help to get the most out of promoting their events online.”
