Simon has spent the last 7 years leading agile teams of .Net, Java and PHP developers across banking and insurance domains, and is currently helping transform Ticketmaster into an always open global one-stop shop for tickets. He recently led a cloud migration for one of Ticketmaster’s e-commerce platforms and is currently leading Ticketmaster International’s engineering strategy implementation.
