In a message to 40-plus employees about his departure, Bluett also praised the development of Freshtix ticketing platform and its call center services.
The Ticket Alternative name is also the backdrop for one of the largest wristband suppliers in the country, moving more than 40 million annually.
Bluett called his decision to leave the company – which Dwyer will continue to steer – “bittersweet,” but noted that, “deep down a change has been calling.”
Dwyer also bought Bluett's shares in Ticket Alternative and will run Ticket Alternative with a new partner.
While he doesn’t have definitive plans beyond spending time with his family and traveling, Bluett said, “I’d like to think my next endeavor keeps me in the music industry!”
