COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Tickets.com, provider of a brand-new Ticket Exploration Engine, www.tickets.com, and supplier of the ProVenue® suite of private label ticketing products to over 1,000 teams and venues around the world, announced this week the addition of Cristine Hurley in the role of Chief Financial Officer. She will immediately take on responsibility for all aspects of Tickets.com's financial strategy and management.

"Cristine has the perfect professional pedigree for our company," explains John Walker, President and CEO of Tickets.com. "Her experience in the sports and entertainment industry will help us immediately. She's extremely talented and will be a strategic partner within all areas of our business, as well as a rock-solid resource for our clients. We're very excited she's chosen to join Tickets.com."

Hurley's CV includes the role of Vice President, Team Finance for the National Basketball Association, where she was a primary league office liaison with all NBA, WNBA and D-League teams. Prior to the NBA, she was the Chief Financial Officer for the Los Angeles Dodgers Major League Baseball franchise. Most recently Hurley was a Partner at Pro Forma Advisors, where she consulted on financial feasibility and economic /fiscal impact studies, primarily relating to sports.
