Power Players: Joe Choti
President and Chief Executive Officer
The MLB Advanced Media-owned Tickets.com isn’t a household consumer brand in the same way as Ticketmaster or StubHub. But under Choti (far left), MLBAM’s former chief technology officer, the company services hundreds of teams and venues and has sought to position itself as a full-service event technology company that happens to do ticketing, as opposed to a ticketing outfit now getting into technology. The last year has been particularly active for Tickets.com as the company signed pacts with 70 new partners — including a deal with Minor League Baseball that represented that property’s first national ticketing partner — and renewed nearly 40 more.
