SAN FRANCISCO - Eventbrite (NYSE: NYSE:EB), a prominent player in the global marketplace for live experiences, has announced significant changes to its leadership structure, set to take place on June 6, 2024. Julia Hartz, co-founder and current CEO, will assume the additional role of Executive Chair of the Board of Directors.

Kevin Hartz, Julia's husband and co-founder, will not seek re-election and will step down from his role as Executive Chairman. Moreover, board member Steffan Tomlinson will resign immediately from the board.

Kevin Hartz, who has been an influential figure in Silicon Valley as both an entrepreneur and an investor, will conclude his term on the board, leaving the company he helped establish in 2006. He has played a pivotal role in Eventbrite's growth and has backed several successful startups, including PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL) and Airbnb. His focus will shift to A, the venture capital firm he founded, where he is launching a second fund.

Steffan Tomlinson's departure comes after an eight-year tenure on Eventbrite's board, during which he chaired the Audit Committee and oversaw the enhancement of the company's audit and risk practices. Helen Riley will take over as chair of the Audit Committee.

The leadership transition is a notable event for Eventbrite, which has been a key player in the experience economy, facilitating the distribution of over 300 million tickets for more than 5 million events in 2023 alone. The company has received recognition for its innovative approach and its commitment to creating a workplace culture that has earned it several accolades.

This announcement comes as Eventbrite continues to navigate through the complexities of post-pandemic recovery, with Julia Hartz at the helm, steering the company's mission to democratize digital ticketing and empower event creators and small businesses globally.
