StubHub has named Dan Jones as the new vice president of international. Jones will be based in Madrid and continue to drive the U.S. based company into global markets.

Jones will have oversight of EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa), Latin America and Asia Pacific regions for the secondary ticketing company.

"With U.S. sports making a significant impact on British soil, and music, sports and theatre fans increasingly travelling further afield to watch live events, cross border trade and internationalization are a core focus for us," said StubHub president Sukhinder Singh Cassidy in a release. "Dan is a fantastic addition to the team and his international experience – combined with his natural passions for the industry – are a great fit for his role to continue to grow our offerings, globally."

Prior to StubHub, Jones was senior vice president at Ancestry, the world’s largest genealogy website, serving as general manager of international and also overseeing the company’s Global Content function. While at Ancestry, Jones oversaw the 2015 launch of the Ancestry DNA consumer genomics product in the UK, Canada and Australia. He also drove investment strategies to open up new markets to Ancestry such as Germany and Mexico.

“StubHub is at an exciting chapter in its story. We know there are millions of customers enjoying StubHub’s marketplace every day, however we also know the live event industry and our customer needs are changing every day,” said Jones in a release. “I’m really excited to be joining StubHub at a time when the company is looking to expand its offerings to customers, from partners to events available, and at a time when we’re responding to customer trends and needs quicker and more thoughtfully than ever before."

Prior to Ancestry, Jones spent six years at The National Archives of the U.K., where he held a number of roles, including leading the business development, online services and marketing / PR departments.

From 1996 to 2002, Jones worked in digital content, as well as intellectual property acquisition and licensing, at the BBC and its commercial arm, BBC Worldwide.

The new hire holds an LLB honours degree in Law and is a graduate of the University of Teesside and the College of Law, York.
