Ron Bension, president and CEO of ASM, said: “There are tremendous opportunities for us to bring substantially increased value to our clients through strategic marketing initiatives. Alex is uniquely qualified to harness the power of the world’s largest live-event marketing platform to drive sales, revenues and awareness to our partner venues around the globe.”

In Merchán’s new role, the former executive vice-president of marketing for Live Nation’s Clubs & Theatres division is responsible for all marketing, data analytics, digital, creative and communications efforts and oversees strategic development across company divisions.

Merchán is tasked with evolving the core marketing strategies and further expanding the portfolio such as recent openings in Coca Cola Music Hall (San Juan, Puerto Rico), Capital One Hall (Tysons, Virginia) and Tacoma Theater (Tacoma, US).

Merchán stated: “ASM’s multichannel digital platform leverages a global footprint and rich live-event data to create and power impactful marketing campaigns, drive guest engagement and grow ticket sales. Our global scope and expertise, technology infrastructure, and strategic partners provide an exciting foundation to leverage on the ground marketing activation with a robust integrated digital network and deliver engaged audiences across all our stadiums, arenas, convention centres and theatres.”
