Green Exits FedExForum

Jim Green, who left Beaver Productions in June to take a position with the Memphis Grizzlies to help beef up the NBA team’s concert operations at the FedExForum, has left that job to focus on his company, TCB Entertainment.

Green’s departure was mutually agreed upon. “We respect Jim’s decision to focus on his business full time,” said Steve Zito, Grizzlies VP of arena operations. “We wish him the best of luck and look forward to working with him in the future.”

After a rough start, FedExForum became a player in the Memphis concert market with the help of Green, who landed shows with Elton John and The Rolling Stones, among others.

“Steve Zito and Andy Dolich (president of basketball operations) are two of the sharpest guys in the business,” Green told Pollstar.
