Ander started his career at Morgan Stanley London, where he specialized in mergers, acquisitions and IPOs of European financial institutions.

In 2009, he left the bank to create Ticketbis.com, an online market where fans can buy and sell tickets to events, with his partner Jon Uriarte.

In 2014, Ticketbis became a leader in South Europe and Latin America.

Present in more than 30 countries, with over 300 employees in 14 offices, and an annual revenue of €55 million, it’s fair to say that Ticketbis has been wildly successful. Ticketbis has recently began operations in Asia, with a special focus on the Japanese market through Ticketbis Japan.
