After nearly a full year without a general manger Mosaic Place and Yara Center, often referred to as the Downtown Facility and Field House (DFFH), have a new person at the top.
The city announced today that Graham Edge will be the man in charge. He has spent the last number of years in Regina working with the Regina Exhibition Association as the Vice-President of Food and Beverage for facilities including Evraz Place.
In addition Edge brings experience from working on site at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.
Ted Schaefer from Parks and Recreation has been the acting CEO and he outlined some of the expectations of the job.
“We’ll probably expect some very detailed reporting from the General Manager and making decisions regarding events. And a little stronger look at risk management, it’s been a priority to manage the risk on any of the events or programs”.
Schaefer added that having someone focused on this role alone is very important.
``It`s a role where you obviously need someone who is full time and dedicating themselves full time to all of the aspects of the position. It will allow us to have somebody really dedicated to the role of moving the facilities forward into the future`.
The first day on the new job for Graham Edge is January 15th.
