Former Skyscanner executive recruited as Citizen Ticket Chair 


UK-based event ticketing platform, Citizen Ticket, has announced the appointment of former Skyscanner executive Carolyn Jameson as its new Chair. 

Carolyn’s two decades of leadership experience within the global technology sector includes six years as Chief Legal Officer at Skyscanner where she played a key role in its international growth and oversaw its sale to Chinese travel giant, Ctrip, for £1.4bn in 2016.  

In 2019, she joined LSE-listed Trustpilot where she currently serves as Chief Trust Officer having recently led it through a successful IPO. Carolyn also serves on the boards of the Scottish National Investment Bank and Scottish Equity Partners. 

Founded in 2013, Edinburgh-headquartered Citizen Ticket provides a premium ticketing and booking platform for event organisers. The company’s cloud-based self-service software enables its clients to generate online payments for ticket sales, manage customers, and capture important data. As well as handling customer service, Citizen Ticket also provides on-site support to clients and assists them with event advertising and marketing.

The company operates with a strong commitment towards ESG and has implemented innovative measures to combat ticket fraud and touting. Through its partnership with the National Forest, it also invests a portion of its revenues in the creation and management of new UK woodlands. 

Having recovered from Covid-19 and the impact of its restrictions on the UK events sector, Citizen Ticket is now on a significant growth journey. The company is on track to exceed £6.2M in transactional volume in the current financial year which are forecast to rise to over £18.6m by 2025.
