Ticketmaster GM in city loses job in reorganization

  • Print

THE longtime general manager of Winnipeg's Ticketmaster office has been laid off as part of a countrywide reorganization of the company's Canadian operations.

Peter Valde had been with the ticket-selling agency in its various incarnations since 1986. Valde has confirmed that his final day will be July 27.

He declined further comment and referred queries to his Toronto boss, Tom Worrall, Ticketmaster's chief operating officer, who did not respond to an e-mail.

A second employee in Winnipeg was also laid off. Ticketmaster employs about a dozen people in the city.

Ticketmaster Canada is the country's leading ticketing agency, providing distribution for approximately 18,000 events annually and operating offices in most major centres.

The company's Los Angeles-based parent was recently purchased by North America's largest concert promoter, Live Nation.

It is unclear whether the reorganization was prompted by the Live Nation buyout.
