CEO of Smooth Tickets
Raymond “Smooth” Summers of Atlanta is the owner of Smooth Tickets, who has been in the ticket business for 40 years. Smooth Tickets specializes in securing better ticket seats at sporting events and concerts, providing its customers prime seating.
Summers is a native of Atlanta and continues to reside there. Mr. Summers is a strong advocate and business person within the Atlanta community. He is the CEO and Founder of Smooth Tickets, Inc. Smooth Tickets was born out of Raymond Summers’ love of attending Atlanta Falcons football games. Even though, the Falcons were an expansion team and not winning many games, he enjoyed the experience, the atmosphere, and the fans so much that he decided to become a season ticket holder. As seasons went on, fans expressed to him the difficulty in purchasing tickets for the football games as well as other events. He saw an opportunity to create a business and to help people. He wanted people to have a stress-free and positive experience and enjoy the event(s) that they paid to attend. Smooth Tickets, Inc. has continued this mission for the past 40 years.
