“We are excited to announce that Charles B. Shatzkin, President of Global Theater Tech, LLC, is our new partner for introducing the PatronBase system to North America. Charles is an arts industry veteran with worldwide experience in venue management software, the Internet, theater technology, fundraising and not-for-profit administration. We could not be more delighted to have someone of his experience introducing the PatronBase platform to two of the most exciting arts markets” said John Caldwell, CEO of PatronBase.

Charles has been a principal fund raiser for the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra and had global leadership roles in sales and marketing at both Select Ticketing (where he was key team member in the development of the first live internet ticketing system) and then Tickets.com. He was Director of International Sales for J.R. Clancy (foremost supplier of theatrical rigging technology), is a 30 year IATSE technician and has sound, lighting and film production credits that number in the hundreds. He also has a Masters in Public Administration from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University.

“We are thrilled to bring PatronBase to the US and Canada”, said Mr. Shatzkin. “The PatronBase system is a complete suite of tools to build an audience your way, providing organizations with a comprehensive platform supporting virtually all of a venue’s sales, marketing and administrative needs, all at a price that will, we think, surprise the market. One system for ticketing, marketing, Internet sales, resource management and inventory control – all integrated in one easy to use and incredibly affordable package. We’re proud to bring PatronBase to this market at a time when venues and organizations need all the help they can get.”

Global Theater Tech will provide sales, support and consultancy coast to coast from offices in New York and Oregon.
