Zito Joins Frain

Steve Zito, senior VP of arena operations for the FedExForum in Memphis, is expected to join Andy Frain Services as president of sports and entertainment.

Zito, a five-year employee of the arena’s anchor pro-sports team the Memphis Grizzlies, will be in charge of expanding Andy Frain Services’ sports accounts and developing new crowd management tools, according to Memphis Business Journal.

AFS, an event services and security firm, supplied the metal detectors and X-ray machines at this year’s U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

Zito, who is credited with being a guiding force in bringing live events such as concerts and the Ultimate Fighting Championship to FedExForum, is expected to join AFS July 12.
