Longtime venue pro Michael Enoch has left the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center near Atlanta, just two months after the 1,070-capacity venue opened.
Enoch, who had previously worked in China for AEG, had managed venues for Sandy Springs including the city’s new City Hall complex and the Byers Theatre, left the post in early October, according to the Marietta Daily Journal. Enoch was an employee of Spectra by Comcast Spectacor.
Enoch took the job prior to the venue’s opening in January 2017, and has a long career in venues including working at AEG’s Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai and opening the Studio City Events Center in Macau.
Spectra spokeswoman Blair Kahora Cardinal told the MDJ that the company has already started its search for a new general manager in Sandy Springs
“We most certainly thank Michael for his contributions toward the successful opening (of) the City Springs Performing Arts Center,” she said. In the interim, Spectra regional v.p. Trent Merritt will serve as the acting general manager for City Springs’ center until a permanent replacement has been hired.
“Trent has been involved with this project as Spectra’s RVP since 2015, and so (he) has been intimately involved with the design, pre-opening, hiring for and overall management of the facility,” Cardinal told the paper.
