Toby Leighton-Pope is the new managing director of TEG EUROPE.

TEG has picked live music veteran Toby Leighton-Pope to run the newly formed TEG EUROPE.

Taking on the role of managing director, Leighton-Pope will oversee the operation, strategic direction and rapid expansion of TEG’s UK-based integrated live entertainment, ticketing, venue, digital and data operations.

Leighton-Pope was previously co-CEO of AEG Presents UK from 2016 to December 2021 and spent the prior 16 years at Live Nation, latterly as senior vice president music.

“Toby’s outstanding record in the live entertainment industry speaks for itself,” said TEG CEO Geoff Jones.

“His ideas, connections, and infectious enthusiasm make him the perfect choice to lead the further expansion of TEG’s successful integrated model into the vibrant UK and European markets.”

Leighton-Pope said he was looking forward to working with the TEG EUROPE team including former CEO of TEG MJR Richard Buck, who is the new head of European touring & Middle East partnerships.

“In the past decade, Geoff and his team have built TEG from Australia’s leading ticketing company, TICKETEK, into an increasingly global and leading player in live entertainment, ticketing, venue, digital and data,” Leighton-Pope said.

“We have a huge opportunity to grow our business and build on TEG’s enduring track record of touring success…and Ticketek’s 40-plus years’ experience ticketing major international events and partnering with the world’s premier venues.”
