MetroCentre general manager announces pending resignation
• RAVE Board accepts Brian Luther’s plans to step down
From press release
May 21, the Rockford Area Venues and Entertainment (RAVE) Authority announced it has accepted the pending resignation of MetroCentre General Manager Brian Luther. Although he has not submitted his official 60-day notice to the board, Luther announced his plans to pursue other career opportunities, but will stay employed at the MetroCentre indefinitely.
“We regretfully accepted Brian’s plans to resign,” said RAVE Board Chairman Mike Dunn. “Brian is an extremely talented individual that has brought expertise in the entertainment industry to the arena. We have asked him to stay with us as long as possible to ensure the continued booking of quality shows for the community, and he has agreed.”
Luther joined the MetroCentre in 2002 as director of Events, and was promoted to assistant general manager in 2003. After former General Manager Corey Pearson resigned in 2009, Luther stepped in to fill his position and continued to book events for the arena and lead the organization. In February 2010, Luther was promoted to the general manager position.
“My career at the Rockford MetroCentre and the time I’ve spent living in the Rockford community has been a rewarding experience,” said Luther. “I’ve had the honor of leading a team of great individuals. The arena is moving in a great direction of the new RAVE Board, and I am confident that now is an appropriate time for me to make the next move in my career.”
