Josh brings to the role over 13 years’ experience building teams and driving innovative marketing strategy at local and global technology brands including Square and Temple & Webster.

“In joining Eventbrite at the beginning of this year, I was immediately inspired by the company’s mission — to bring the world together through live experiences. We’re doing this by connecting an underserved market with world-class technology that helps event creators run and grow their events – and their businesses,” McNicol said.
“Events and live experiences offer people the unique opportunity to create memories, build community, and connect with the world around them. In this new role, I’m excited to have the opportunity to help people throughout Asia Pacific create and discover even more live experiences that excite and inspire them.”
