That job summary states, “Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer & Alternate Governor, Abbotsford the Arena General Manager of Abbotsford Centre is responsible for physical plant operations, building maintenance and repairs, capital improvements, and building system operations.

The operations manager is responsible for building conversions and set-up at Abbotsford Centre, while the marketing director will oversee the planning, development, and execution of all campaigns contained within the marketing plan.
The job openings state they will remain posted until they are filled.
One position that is no longer accepting applications is the Chief Operating Officer. That job was posted on May 18. No official announcement or hiring of that position has been revealed.
The team was scheduled to unveil its name, colours and logo on July 9 (Friday), but the team announced on Thursday evening that they would be delaying that announcement until Friday.
The Aquilini Investment Group’s five-year contract to take over the Abbotsford Centre begins on Jan 1, 2022.
