U.S. Cellular Center Executive Director Sharon Cummins To Retire


AMES, IA (CelebrityAccess) — Veteran facilities manager Sharon Cummins, currently the Executive Director of the U.S. Cellular Center, Paramount Theatre, Cedar Rapids Ice Arena and McGrath Amphitheatre in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, announced that after a 30-year career, she's planning to retire.

“On July 7, 2017, I will celebrate my 30th year in the public assembly management industry,” said Cummins. “Never would I have thought 30 years ago when I answered an ad for the City of Cedar Rapids looking for an Administrative Assistant at the Five Seasons Center what an exciting career I would have in this business. I have met incredible people, had the pleasure of working with great mentors and feel that I have made a positive contribution to the varied tasks that I have undertaken. I am now ready for the next adventure in my life. Ron and I plan to travel the country, spend time with family and friends and just see what lies ahead.”

In addition to serving as the Executive Director of the U.S. Cellular Center and other venues in Cedar Rapids, Cummins also did a seven-year stint as the National Director of Planning and Development at VenuWorks’ corporate office.

VenuWorks announced that Associate Executive Director Mike Silva will succeed Cummins at the helm effective July 1, 2017. – Staff Writers
