WICHITA — Intrust Bank Arena assistant general manager Scott Neal – the longest-serving employee at the arena – is leaving to become general manager of Rabobank Arena, Theater & Convention Center in Bakersfield, Calif.
“It’s kind of the natural process within our company,” says A.J. Boleski, Intrust Bank Arena general manager.
Both arenas are SMG properties.
According to the Bakersfield Californian, the last Rabobank Arena general manager left in September amid a decline in bookings.
Intrust Bank Arena has had its own issues, including being $219,417 in the red through September.
Boleski says that has nothing to do with Neal’s departure.
“He’s done a phenomenal job.”
