Baltimore-based MissionTix announced Tuesday that it has named Greg Cangialosi as CEO. MissionTix provides an online ticketing platform and consumer portal for events, concerts, and fundraisers, and Cangialosi plans to bring new ideas, technology innovation, and cutting-edge analytics to the team.
“Our goal is to create the best experience around ticketing for both event organizers and attendees,” Cangialosi told Tech Cocktail. “We want to provide the best consumer experience while also delivering innovative technology and analytics-driven value to ticket sellers of all shapes and sizes.”
MissionTix previously served the Baltimore Food Truck Gathering, Charm City Folk, and Bluegrass Festival. Prior to taking on the CEO role, Cangialosi joined MissionTix as a consultant; he was promoted to the newly created CEO position in January, according to the Baltimore Business Journal.
“As CEO, I am looking to take a 13-year-old company back to its startup roots. In the short-term, we are about to launch a next generation ticketing platform for event producers and a new consumer front end site that will offer one of the easiest purchasing experiences for all patrons on any device.”
Under his leadership, MissionTix will roll out a revamped consumer site experience. Once the new platform is launched, Cangialosi hopes to move into growth and expand the company’s reach throughout the US and beyond.
Cangialosi has been an active player in Baltimore’s tech startup scene, having initially founded Blue Sky Factory, an email marketing firm which was purchased by Atlanta-based WhatCounts in 2011. He is also the cofounder of Betamore, a Baltimore-based incubator for tech companies; chairs the board at the Greater Baltimore Technology Council; and manages the Baltimore Angels, a group of investors aimed at making investments to help other entrepreneurs advance to the next stage of their business.
“This is great for the Baltimore Tech scene as our entire ecosystem is growing rapidly,” said Cangialosi. “I will continue to support the technology community as always through my efforts with Betamore and the Baltimore Angels, and if we do indeed grow at MissionTix, it will mean more jobs and opportunities within this vibrant community.”
