REVENUE MANAGER × TICKETING STRATEGIST × INVESTOR

Brian launched the Insights group at Serino Coyne - the nation's oldest live entertainment marketing & advertising agency - in the spring of 2014 after two years with the company. As a sales and ticketing strategist, he provides his clients with daily ticketing, pricing and inventory recommendations supported by transactional data, sales patterns and market directionality. Just like hotels and airlines, knowing the changing supply & demand curve and elasticity for each price set, every night, sells the right ticket to the right buyer at the right price.

Knowledge of buying patterns and consumer behavior allows for meticulous sales management, revenue forecasting and yield modeling. In an industry where eighty percent of projects fail to recoup their investment, identifying incremental revenue opportunities early can be the difference between weekly profitability and not. Brian’s clients regularly receive 250+ dynamic pricing changes every week to capitalize on those opportunities. His team’s understanding of each show’s changing sales patterns and buyer profiles helps to influence the advertising campaign into its most efficient plan.

He has lectured for Columbia University's MFA program and the Commercial Theater Institute's 16 Week Program, Three-Day Intensive and marketing seminars. Current clients include Dear Evan Hansen, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, The Phantom of the Opera, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Parisian Woman, and Escape to Margaritaville.

He is a proud graduate of Boston University with degrees in Advertising and Theatre Management. He is currently completing an Advanced Certificate in Revenue Management (Pricing and Demand Strategies) at the SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University.
