Meet Kevin, our new regional sales manager for Ontario !
HELLO KEVIN AND WELCOME ! CAN YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF ?

My name is Kevin Mac, I grew up in Toron­to. I have more than four years of expe­ri­ence as a busi­ness devel­op­ment and account man­ag­er. I am a per­son who thrives in a fast-paced envi­ron­ment so I am look­ing for­ward to the oppor­tu­ni­ty to apply my tech­ni­cal expe­ri­ence and my cre­ative prob­lem solv­ing skills at Weezevent.

WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE WEEZEVENT ? AND HOW DID YOU KNOW WEEZEVENT ?

I worked in the sales and mar­ket­ing indus­try for 4+ years doing busi­ness devel­op­ment and account man­age­ment. I found out about Weezevent when I was look­ing at pur­chas­ing tick­ets for Just For Laughs event.

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE IN THE COMPANY ?

I am the Region­al Sales Man­ag­er for Ontario for Weezevent. My role is to prospect, iden­ti­fy and close clients in this ter­ri­to­ry. I com­plete the team already set­tled in Que­bec.

HOW YOUR FIRST DAYS ARE GOING ? COULD YOU DESCRIBE THE CANADIAN MARKET ?

The first days are going great, I am learn­ing a lot about the com­pa­ny and the indus­try. The Cana­di­an mar­ket has lots of poten­tial with festivals/events hap­pen­ing year round and is pret­ty com­pet­i­tive with a cou­ple of big play­ers. The cash­less pay­ment method is very new to parts of Cana­da, not a lot of events are tak­ing advan­tage of this oppor­tu­ni­ty so it could be a good way for Weezevent to enter the mar­ket and dis­tin­guish itself from oth­ers.

IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT IS THE MAIN ADVANTAGE THAT WEEZEVENT HAS, REGARDING THE COMPETITORS ?

I think the main advan­tage Weezevent has, is that it has the low­est tick­et­ing fees com­pared to its com­peti­tors and their plat­form is very user friend­ly for their clients. As I said, cash­less tech­nol­o­gy is an oppor­tu­ni­ty with the expe­ri­ence and exper­tise we got.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MAIN CHALLENGE OF WEEZEEVENT IN CANADA ?

I think the main chal­lenge for Weezevent is enter­ing new mar­kets. The com­pa­ny at this time, doesn’t have the brand recog­ni­tion like its com­peti­tors have in Cana­da, but I am con­fi­dent that this will change with­in the com­ing months.

THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING OUR QUESTIONS, ANYTHING TO SAY TO CONCLUDE ?

I am excit­ed about the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work for such a great com­pa­ny with lots of poten­tial. I can’t wait for Weezevent to become a house­hold name in Ontario!
