SMG Promotions

SMG has advanced the titles of four executives, including Mike Evans.

Three senior VPs are now executive VPs. John Burns is now exec VP and CFO, Maureen Ginty is exec VP of marketing services and human resources, and Evans is exec VP of sports and entertainment.

“John, Mike and Maureen have been critical members of my team and SMG for more than a decade,” SMG CEO Wes Westley said in a statement. “This new position recognizes their contributions.”

Also promoted is Louisiana Superdome-based Doug Thornton, who as senior VP will report directly to Westley.

Evans oversees bookings in various SMG-managed facilities and oversees six regional booking managers. He was also instrumental in developing the company’s booking system,
