Richard Blackburn-Hughes, Group Business Development Director

Richard Blackburn-Hughes

Head of Commercial

Richard joined the Ticketer Group in 2021 to take responsibility for the Group’s strategic partnerships and acquisitions. He has become a familiar face in the industry as part of his quest to shape Ticketer’s partnership programme, to offer more value and opportunities for operators and local authorities. Richard is a self-confessed public transport nut and has demonstrated a real passion and enthusiasm for the industry. In fact, so much so, that his role expanded to Head of Commercial in 2022 so that he could spend more time travelling around the UK to meet our lovely customers.
