Event ticketing platform Citizen Ticket has appointed former Skyscanner executive Carolyn Jameson as its new chair. 

Jameson’s two decades of leadership experience within the global technology sector includes six years as chief legal officer at Skyscanner. 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 Trustpilot where she currently serves as chief trust officer. She also serves on the boards of the Scottish National Investment Bank and Scottish Equity Partners. 

Founded in 2013, Edinburgh-based Citizen Ticket uses cloud-based self-service software that enables its clients to generate online payments for ticket sales, manage customers, and capture data. It also provides on-site support to clients and assists them with event advertising and marketing. 

The company said it is on track to exceed £6.2m in transactional volume in the current financial year which are forecast to rise to more than £18.6m by 2025. 

Citizen Ticket co-founder and CEO Harry Boisseau said, “Carolyn is a highly skilled and experienced operator within the global tech sector and a key player who has helped scale major technology businesses to reach their full market potential. She brings real substance to our team and will be a major contributing factor to our future success and growth.”
