Co-founders Michael Nabarro and Matt Scarisbrick move to executive roles whilst Director of Business Development Libby Penn becomes Managing Director

Spektrix, the leading cloud-based box office management software for the arts, today announced key senior management moves that reflect the company’s rapid growth in the UK and North American markets.

Effective immediately, co-founders Michael Nabarro and Matt Scarisbrick become Spektrix chief executive officer and chief technical officer respectively, whilst director of business development Libby Penn is promoted to managing director.

As CEO, Michael Nabarro assumes responsibility for establishing the vision for the business and strategic oversight of the company’s long term business plan. Spektrix’s goal is to become the de facto technology platform for arts organisations across the globe.

Matt Scarisbrick will continue to lead the company’s extensive R&D programme in his capacity as CTO, whilst ensuring that Spektrix customers benefit from the best technical solutions, maximum uptime and airtight information security for their audience data.

In her expanded role as managing director, Libby Penn will oversee all aspects of the company’s business in the UK, whilst continuing to manage key partner relationships and the sales & marketing of Spektrix in the UK.

In 2014 more than 8.9 million tickets were sold using Spektrix’s cloud-based platform, involving over a billion web hits.

‘When Matt and I started Spektrix in 2007, we saw a market that was suffering from the limitations of expensive client-server technology while other industries were taking advantage of the SaaS approach and multi-tenancy,’ said Michael Nabarro.  ‘In 2015, Spektrix has led the way in cloud-based ticketing, CRM and box office management for the arts. The situation leaves us poised to transform the market in the next 5 to 10 years.’
