It’s no secret that we all get rather excited when welcoming on board a new member of the Event Genius and Festicket family.
During our ‘Meet the Team’ blog series, we’ll be shining the spotlight on the people helping make the magic happen, finding out their stories, ambitions, the live entertainment experiences that shaped them, and more.
In this latest post we caught up with one of the newest members of our Finance Team, Charlie Martin, who has joined as our Financial Controller.
Why did you choose to join Event Genius?
It was an exciting role, and the opportunity to be involved in a fast-growing company which combines my passion for live events and music with technology was one I couldn't turn down!
What attracted you to the live events and festival industry? Or what do you enjoy most about the industry if you've previously worked in it?
As a huge fan of live events, it's always been important for me to work with companies that facilitate these events in some way. In my previous company I was working on the artist side, and I'm now excited to gain insight into other areas and aspects of the industry.
What do you hope to achieve at Event Genius?
I hope to be part of a successful team (both finance and company-wide), improve my skills, learn from others and enjoy my work!
What are you most excited about in your new role here?
I'm excited about getting stuck into something new, learning and developing personally and professionally, and being part of process improvement within the company in order to help it achieve its goals.
As a fan, what is your favourite festival or gig memory?
Lots to choose from but it's got to be my first ever Friday night at Glastonbury in 2014, seeing Elbow play the Pyramid Stage at sunset - I wasn't even a fan of theirs before but this was magic!
If you've worked in the event and festival industries before, what is your favourite onsite working memory
Working with artists in previous roles has meant that I've managed to spend some time at the side of the stage - always unbelievable to see a crowd of fans from the perspective of a performer!
Charlie will be based in our London office, but we also have offices across the world, including in Europe, North America and Australia, and are actively growing our teams across all these territories.
We’re a close-knit team of passionate music fans and event-goers dedicated to making the industry a better place for fans and organisers alike, and are always on the lookout for other like-minded individuals to join the family.
