Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Gametime

A former Stanford volleyball player and a baseball operations intern for the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago White Sox, Griffith has been a major figure in creating the notion of last-minute ticketing and growing it into an industry force. For years, many teams prohibited resales in the final hours leading up to an event. But the advent of Gametime and its elegant, mobile-based platform allows fans to buy tickets right up to the start of a game, and in some cases, even after it begins. By creating that avenue for live events as more of an impulse buy, Griffith and Gametime have attracted a far younger audience and forced several competitors, including StubHub, to change their policies.
