SPOKANE, WA – The Spokane Public Facilities District announced that it has named current Spokane Convention Center General Manager, Stephanie Curran, as incoming CEO. Kevin Twohig, District CEO, announced back in September that he will be retiring at the end of 2017. The District engaged Venue Solutions Group to lead a national search process and recently conducted a series of candidate interviews.
Stephanie Curran, who has been an employee of the District since 2003, has served in many roles ranging from Event Supervisor to Assistant General Manager of the Spokane Convention Center and INB Performing Arts Center to being named General Manager in 2015.
Stephanie brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in event and facilities management, community partnerships and fiscal awareness of the District. “Her current depth within the District, her energy and vision for a fast paced, evolving and competitive event planning environment makes Stephanie uniquely qualified for this position,” said Marty Dickinson, District Board member.
Outgoing CEO Kevin Twohig commented, “I am very pleased to see Stephanie emerge as the successful candidate from what was an extensive national search process. I have great confidence in her ability to lead the District.”
Curran was featured in the 2016 F&D SuperBook A-List of Women Convention Center Executives.
