Gateway Ticketing Systems, a leading provider of admission control systems, has announced that Tom Chiarella, Director of Product, has been recognised by The Lehigh Valley Business Journal.
Chiarella was listed in the publication’s Forty under 40 list for 2021, which celebrates young businessmen and women who have been making headlines in their field and who are committed to business growth, professional excellence and their community.
Steering the team through crisis
“It is an honour to be recognized alongside the incredibly accomplished individuals recognized by the Lehigh Valley Business Journal,” says Chiarella. “I am grateful for the support of my family and the team at Gateway Ticketing Systems.”
Chiarella was promoted to his current role in 2019, earning a position within the company’s Executive Leadership Team.
“Since then, Tom has propelled Galaxy and the Product Development Team forward through incredibly difficult times,” says Michael Andre, President and CEO of Gateway Ticketing Systems.
“During the Covid pandemic, Tom kept a focus on improving the Galaxy features that would help our customers through the crisis, while also driving his team to develop new functionality that is needed in the post-Covid environment of our industry. There is no doubt in my mind that he is well-deserving of this recognition.”
Following the list’s announcement, this year’s Forty Under 40 will be honoured during a virtual event on 8 2021 at noon at the DeSales University Conference Center.
Gateway Ticketing Systems also recently produced a COVID Rebound Services Menu to help operators anticipate and prepare for rising ticket sales.
Earlier this year, the company also announced the release of the latest version of its Galaxy Ticketing & Guest Experience solution, which delivers the features that attractions need as they recover from the impacts of COVID-19. Gateway has made improvements to the online guest experience, infrastructure, control over timed and capacity events, data integrity and fraud security.
