Head of Ticketing at London Olympics 2012 announced

I was delighted to get a call yesterday from Paul Williamson to tell me has been appointed as Head of Ticketing for London 2012. Currently, Sales Director at Ticketmaster in Europe, I’ve gotten to know Paul over the last 6 months and respect his insight into the ticketing industry.

Despite being a Man Utd fan, he’s actually a nice guy and has tons of knowledge and experience in sporting events. This is a great hire for London Olympics – pity he disagrees with me about e-tickets.

He tells me he is aiming to sell 99% of the Olympic tickets online, up on the 90% that Beijing have managed in their first round of ticket sales.
