Jacobs, an accom­plished busi­ness solu­tions exec­u­tive, joins acces­so fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful tenure as the Divi­sion­al Direc­tor to the enter­tain­ment indus­try for Omni­Co. Pre­vi­ous­ly he was a co-founder of MATRA Sys­tems and built its U.S. and Euro­pean busi­ness, with a prin­ci­pal focus on the amuse­ments and attrac­tions indus­try. MATRA was pur­chased by Clarity/​OmniCo in 2006

As Man­ag­ing Direc­tor for Europe, Jacobs will lead accesso’s efforts around queu­ing and tick­et­ing across the region. 

With more than 25 years in the retail trans­ac­tion busi­ness in both the attrac­tions and enter­tain­ment indus­tries, we are thrilled Andrew has joined our team and brings his proven lead­er­ship skills, busi­ness devel­op­ment exper­tise and pas­sion for tech­nol­o­gy to Acces­so” said Steve Brown, acces­so COO for North Amer­i­ca and Europe. His track record for build­ing strong cus­tomer rela­tion­ships and deliv­er­ing cre­ative tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions make him the right leader as we fur­ther expand our full range of tick­et­ing and queu­ing solu­tions across Europe – a region filled with attrac­tion com­pa­nies eager to dri­ve topline rev­enue growth through inno­v­a­tive use of technology.” 

Accesso’s port­fo­lio of tech­nolo­gies com­bined with its growth tra­jec­to­ry offer a future with great promise and impact in one of the world’s most dynam­ic indus­tries,” said Jacobs. I’m excit­ed to be part of a com­pa­ny that mir­rors my per­son­al val­ues of integri­ty and com­mit­ment, and to have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to part­ner with Europe’s lead­ing attrac­tions and enter­tain­ment companies.” 

Jacobs will be based in the Unit­ed Kingdom.
