Maureen Andersen, President and CEO at the International Ticketing Association (INTIX) will present the Performing Arts keynote address at the annual PACnet community conference.
Maureen Andersen has more than 35 years of experience spanning not-for-profit organizations, commercial arts, Broadway, regional ticketing, performing arts and colleges. From the ticket office to call centers, season tickets to group sales, marketing, fundraising and management, Andersen has experience spanning the breadth of the live event and ticketing industry. She began her career with a more than two-decade stint at The Denver Center for Performing Arts, overseeing ticketing and sales. Most recently, she worked as Vice President of Arts & Entertainment at AudienceView and served as Chair of INTIX. The PACnet appearance will be a bit of a return home for Andersen, who previously served as senior project manager for Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement, working with all market genres.
“Being asked to speak at PACnet is a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends and peers. I’m honored to be able to address the Spectra community and share the experiences in performing arts and beyond,” said Andersen. “It is an exciting time in ticketing around the world, with fan and patron engagement through ticketing and marketing and service becoming more important than ever.”
Andersen has been an active participant in and resource for the industry for many years with more than 30 years of service to INTIX, including 18 years on its board and three stints as Chair. She has been highly engaged, serving on the Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and chairing multiple committees including Education, Body of Knowledge, and Sponsorship, as well as several Denver and Colorado conference committees. INTIX has recognized her several times, including with the Box Office of the Year award, the Box Office Manager of the Year award, and INTIX’s highest honor, the Patricia G. Spira Lifetime Achievement Award. She has also received the Alumni Pathfinder Award from Northeastern Jr. Colleges.
With her appointment into the leadership position at INTIX, Andersen resigned her role as Chair, which was immediately filled by Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement Founder Jane Kleinberger.
“Maureen’s wide range of experience gives her a true grasp of many market genres. Her various roles have required her to interact with a wide-range of positions within our entertainment venues from CEOs to front-line agents,” Kleinberger said. “Perhaps most importantly, Maureen is a strategist which further fuels her true passion for the industry to achieve more. Her experience and wealth of knowledge will serve to motivate the PACnet ’17 community to think even bigger.”
