Global online attractions ticket provider 365Tickets has a new chairman. Aaron Chatterley was appointed to the role on January 1.
Chatterley has been involved in online businesses since the original internet boom. In 1996, he set up award-winning web development company SP New Media. Nine years later, he founded feelunique, Europe’s largest online beauty retailer.
Having recently led a partial sale of the company and stepped aside as its CEO, he remains a shareholder and board member of feelunique, as well as an active investor in tech and disruptive businesses. In 2014, Chatterley was voted one of the 50 most powerful people in online retail by Retail Week.
And now he’s pleased to bring his experience to 365Tickets. “Having looked under the hood of the business, there’s some exceptional USPs, industry experience and an accomplished, highly-regarded reputation for global ticket distribution,” says Chatterley. “With an attractions industry primed for growth, I’m truly excited to part of the board, supporting the executive in Jersey and 365Tickets internationally.”
“I recently heard Aaron as a guest speaker at an event for global e-commerce businesses,” says 365Tickets managing director Tim De Gruchy. “Demonstrating his ‘hands-on’ experience and highlighting key milestones for growth resonated completely. It’s a fantastic time for Aaron to come onboard.”
