Eventbrite appoints Josh McNicol as general manager for Asia Pacific

Eventbrite has said it is doubling down on its commitment to the Asia Pacific region, with the appointment of Josh McNicol to the general manager role.

The announcement:

Today we announced the appointment of Josh McNicol to the role of General Manager, Eventbrite Asia Pacific. In this role, Josh will direct a growing team of more than 40 Britelings across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, responsible for powering more than 330,000 events in the region last year.

Josh has more than 13 years’ experience building strong teams and driving innovative marketing strategy at local and global technology brands including Square and Temple & Webster. At Square, Josh established and led teams working across marketing and acquisition, brand, and strategy both in Australia and in San Francisco, where he led Square’s global brand marketing team.

Josh brings strong commercial acumen, extensive marketing experience and a passion for building brands that Australians love.

“In joining Eventbrite at the beginning of this year, I was immediately inspired by the company’s mission — to bring the world together through live experiences. We’re doing this by connecting an underserved market with world-class technology that helps event creators run and grow their events – and their businesses,” Josh said.

“Events and live experiences offer people the unique opportunity to create memories, build community, and connect with the world around them. In this new role, I’m excited to have the opportunity to help people throughout Asia Pacific create and discover even more live experiences that excite and inspire them.”

Josh’s appointment underscores Eventbrite’s commitment to continued growth in the Asia Pacific region. In the last 12 months, Eventbrite entered Asia by launching a localised platform in Singapore and Hong Kong, and expanded its presence in New Zealand. Eventbrite’s APAC team, which has grown by 25% in the last year alone, served more than 60,000 event creators and processed more than 17 million tickets to more than 330,000 events in Asia Pacific in 2018.
