Primary ticket agency, Skiddle is pleased to announce the further strengthening of its management team with the recent appointment of Margaret Tinsley in the role of Business Development Manager (Tickets).
Margaret is a seasoned ticketing professional who, prior to joining Skiddle has worked in a number of senior roles for organisations such as Cream Group Ltd, Liverpool Sound City, as well as the international ticket sales and distribution organisation, Ticketmaster/TicketWeb.
Representing a significant coup for Preston-based Skiddle Ltd, Margaret will work closely with Skiddle’s board and senior management team in broadening the range of events selling tickets through Skiddle.com, as well as aiding the consolidation of the considerable growth the company has recently seen.
Skiddle’s Ticketing Director Richard Dyer said “Skiddle has grown astronomically over the past couple of years and we recognise we need to put the right people in place to ensure we continue to deliver the exceptional levels of service we’ve become known for.”

A well known face in the live events industry, Margaret’s role will include the continued development of all ticket sales, focusing on festivals and Skiddle’s ticketing solution RapidScan.
Commenting on her appointment, Margaret said: “I’ve known of Skiddle for years, both as healthy competition and as a strategic partner. In that time I’ve seen Skiddle develop to become one of the best loved ticket brands and it’s really exciting to join the business whilst it’s growing so quickly.”
