The Peoria Civic Center has hired a new general manager.
Rik Edgar, the current manager of a West Virginia arena, will serve as the new general manager of the Civic Center. Edgar comes from Huntington, W. Va., where he manages the Big Sandy Superstore Arena.
“Rik has a strong history of partnering with other community organizations to make the facilities he oversees as successful as possible. His creative ideas and experience will be great assets to the Peoria Civic Center,” said SMG Regional General Manager Richard MacKeigan.
The search for a new GM started in early March following the departure of previous manager Anne Clayton.
Edgar and his wife have two kids. He has a master's degree from the University of South Carolina.
