"...[James Holzman] is constantly growing his business. I have had a successful career and I can't think of anyone better to take over," said Cohen.

"The way of strategic partnerships and acquisitions such as Out of Town Ticket has been our road to success," said Holzman. "We have always looked for ways to grow our business and will always explore any new opportunity for growth."
