This has been followed by guys like Tom Gulitti for awhile, but today was the first time that we'd noticed anthing official about this situation, when we went to the Prudential Center website and noticed that the Devils have hired former COO of FleetCenter in Boston, Rich Krezwick as President, Devils Arena Entertainment, the company that manages the Prudential Center. He will oversee programming and management of any and all events that will take place at the arena, which may include the New Jersey Nets as soon as next season.
Here's what Devils chairman Jeff Vanderbeek had to say:
In joining us from Boston's FleetCenter, Rich is a terrific addition to our organization. His marketing and sales talents, along with his financial background and arena operations experience make him the perfect person to join our team and take Prudential Center to the next level. He is well respected in the industry and through his contacts, will ensure that Prudential Center and the City of Newark are further enhanced as a premier destination for sports and entertainment events.
Let's all wish him well here at ILWT. As any good Devil fan should say, the Prudential Center is our home, and how it progresses as a first-class facility is something that should be important to us.
