Since May, 2014, Joseph Schnaier has served as the President and CEO of Wantickets. He is responsible for the oversight of all of the day to day operations within the company. 

His finance career first started as an entrepreneur and investment banker on Wall Street in 1996, and ever since he has made quite the name for himself in his field and is known as a well respected leader.
