Stagelink on course for growth
New COO steps up expansion, workforce doubled within weeks
With the conclusion of the last round of financing in June, Florian Fehr takes over as Chief Operations Officer of Stagelink. The operations specialist who recently ran the internationalization for Danish social media marketing company Falcon Social, will continue to enforce Stagelink’s expansion. Both, the entry into new markets, as well as a diversification of the existing portfolio, are next important milestones. To meet the respective requirements, the staff recently grew from 7 to 17 employees. Tickets in the amount of $1,000,000 were sold in the last 12 months. The company's revenue grew by 700% in this period.
"Stagelink continuously celebrated growth performance in the past few months - now we are approaching the next major milestones," says Florian Fehr.
Further support came for the company’s marketing, development and sales departments. A vital component is to increase the brand’s awareness in all relevant target groups. In addition, the number of international tours is about to grow significantly in the next months. Meanwhile, the development team works at full speed to expand the product. Stagelink just moved into a new office in Berlin Mitte, offering space for further team members the company is already looking for.
"The focus on shows and tours with social media creators caused a massive boost for Stagelink. Fans want to meet and experience their favorite YouTube stars live - and this is exactly what Stagelink enables them to do," says CEO Nikolas Schriefer.
