Paul Cheetham: "After careful consideration, I have decided to leave AEG and my role as Booking Director of the Verti Music Hall in Berlin. It has been an unforgettable experience helping to launch and establish this wonderful venue on the market and I am very proud to have been part of the team that has hosted so many incredible events since the venue opened in October 2018.

During the Covid 19 lockdown there opened up an unexpected window in which to reflect on what I have achieved and how I have reached my initial targets. I’m left feeling that it’s the right time to look for a new challenge, perhaps helping companies and events as they look to steer themselves out of the current difficult situation. I have nothing but good things to say about AEG, my management and colleagues. It’s been a great experience”.

Uwe Frommhold (Vice President & COO, Anschutz Entertainment Group Germany): "The Anschutz Entertainment Group thanks Paul Cheetham for his great efforts and successful work in recent years as Booking Manager at the Verti Music Hall. Paul was an important part of the team during the opening of the venue in October 2018 and its establishment on Berlin event market. We wish him all the best for his further career.

Paul’s last day at Verti Music Hall will be 14th August. Until his successor has been found, Markus Jentsch, Event Manager at AEG since April 2017, will take over the booking at the venue.
