WICHITA — Sarah Haertl says there’s only one arena she would have left Intrust Bank Arena for, and now that’s what she’s doing.
“My original dream job was Intrust Bank Arena,” says Haertl, who has been the director of sales and marketing since October 2009, three months before the arena opened.
“It’s just a dream opportunity for me,” she says. “The BOK is just one of those special buildings that for whatever reason continues to exceed expectations.”
Haertl is married to Bruce Haertl, sports director for KWCH, Channel 12.
“At this point I plan to come back on weekends … and one night during the week and commute as well as we possibly can,” Sarah Haertl says. “I do not have this all figured out yet.”
The Haertls have two older children and two younger ones, and Sarah Haertl says they’re all right with her move.
“The 10-year-old is really excited because the BOK Center has a Justin Bieber date.”
