LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Venue management firm SMG has appointed Becky Colwell as the new General Manager of the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
An industry veteran, Colwell has served for the past thirteen years as General Manager of the SMG-managed Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, North Carolina, where she has overseen all aspects of the operations at the 7,000 seat facility that has played host to an notable list of national touring acts and festivals. Under Colwell’s leadership the Koka Booth Amphitheatre was voted Best Outdoor Amphitheater by readers of the Independent Weekly.
Colwell was appointed after SMG conducted a search for candidates both outside of, and within the SMG organization. According to SMG Executive Vice President Doug Thornton, it was Colwell’s experience in amphitheater management and positive working relationships with tenants and promoters that made her the right choice.
“Becky has demonstrated an ability to increase the programming at Koka Booth, while also balancing the interest of the constituents there,” said Thornton. “That experience, coupled with the experience she has working with top-line artists will serve her well as she represents us at the Greek.” – Staff Writers
