TTF names new director

Richard Howle

THE TICKET Factory (TTF) has appointed former Really Useful Theatres Group commercial director Richard Howle as director of ticketing.

Howle has spent 18 years working in the ticketing industry, including as international sales director at AKA Promotions. He is also a director of the governing council of the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR).

“The Ticket Factory is a company I have long admired with a well-deserved reputation for delivering excellence,” says Howle.

“Over the past decade, it has established itself as an industry challenger in a highly competitive, fast-moving industry and has an exciting future ahead.”

Former TTF MD Stuart Cain left the NEC Group-owned company earlier this year (see LIVE UK issue 212) to work at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena (cap. 40,000) and Wasps RFC.

NEC also owns Arena Birmingham (15,500) and the city’s Genting Arena (15,500).
