Duluth, GA. (August 3, 2016) – Infinite Energy Center announced today the recent additions of Business Development Manager Kevin Gibson and Marketing Communications Manager Marcia Powell.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome two outstanding individuals to our team,” said Joseph Dennis, general manager at Infinite Energy Center. “With the growth and progress at Infinite Energy Center, we recognized that new energy and experience will continue to contribute to our success.”
Gibson comes to Infinite Energy Center with a strong resume spanning over 11 years of relevant and industry-related sales experience. As business development manager, Gibson will oversee and coordinate all aspects of the sponsorship sales and service process for Infinite Energy Center. Additionally, Gibson will assist in marketing and selling premium seating products.
“My role in a nutshell is to drum up business for Infinite Energy Center and sell premium products, sponsorships, suite leases and group packages while also servicing these accounts and getting the Infinite Energy Center name out in the market,” said Gibson.
Prior to joining Infinite Energy Center, Gibson was part of the Atlanta Hawks and Philips Arena team where he sold season tickets, group tickets and premium group memberships. He consistently led these departments in terms of overall sales revenue while acquiring numerous corporate accounts along the way.
Gibson is a graduate of Georgia Southern University where he earned degrees in sport management and accounting. He is also a competitive runner and a Yelp Elite member.
In her new role, Powell will provide marketing and public relations support for ticketed events across all three venues as well as ensure Infinite Energy Center’s brand guidelines are maintained, among other responsibilities.
Powell graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in public relations. She began her career at Gwinnett Center (now Infinite Energy Center) as a sales assistant and later became the sales and marketing manager. She played a role in the first campus expansion which included both the opening of the Grand Ballroom in 2002 and the arena in 2003.
“I’m looking forward to stepping back into the role of Marketing Manager here at Infinite Energy Center,” said Powell. “It is an amazing company with a great staff and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Powell comes to Infinite Energy Center with 4 years of event marketing experience and joins the team to continue the rebranding efforts of the recent naming rights agreement reached in August of 2014. In addition to her prior experience, Powell is married and most recently worked as a stay-at-home mom and home school teacher for her two boys, ages 8 and 11.
