It is a great pleasure to welcome former Sky Bet CEO Richard Flint as our new Chairman.

Richard, who has been part of Seat Unique’s board since November 2021, will step up from his previous position as Investor and Advisor with immediate effect.

Speaking about his transition from Advisor to Chairman, Richard said: “I have long been interested in the premium ticketing business, particularly as it moves online and becomes more accessible to individuals and families who are prepared to pay a little bit extra for truly memorable experiences. There is a huge opportunity here for Seat Unique to become the trusted partner to sports clubs and music venues, and the trusted source of premium tickets for interested customers.”

Richard has a proven track record for driving businesses to excellence. He was instrumental in turning Sky Bet into one of the biggest operations in the UK betting industry, growing revenues from under £30m to over £750m pa over more than 10 years.

He is now focused on investing and working with UK start-up/scale-ups, including being the Chair of Butternut Box, the fast-growing fresh dog food subscription business. He is also a Non-Exec on the Board of Flutter Entertainment plc which now owns Sky Bet, and a Non-Exec Director of the LadBible Group.

Prior to his role at Sky Bet, Richard held positions at the Financial Times and McKinsey & Sky. He is also a graduate of Oxford and Harvard University in Engineering, Economics and Management and Public Policy.

“From a personal point of view, I am delighted to be working with Richard on a regular basis. His expertise and guidance will help in many ways, making the VIP experience even more accessible for fans who want to enjoy great events.”

In Richard’s new role, he will continue to drive Seat Unique’s mission of helping fans get greater access to official premium tickets and hospitality packages for live events. His leadership appointment will be critical in maintaining our focus on providing a seamless, safe and secure online experience for fans and partners alike.

Everyone at Seat Unique would like to thank Richard for his support and guidance on everything we have accomplished so far, and welcome him to his new role as Chairman of the Board.
