Ngata Allphones Arena GM

Guy Ngata takes over as general manager of Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia, starting mid-September.

He is currently general manager of Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, a post he has held for the past two and a half years after a stint as CEO of Vector Arena in New Zealand.

“Guy is an outstanding venue manager and well respected throughout the industry globally,” said Harvey Lister, chairman and CEO of AEG Ogden. “We are very fortunate to have him coming on board to manage one of the finest arenas in the nation.”

AEG Ogden manages Allphones Arena for the Nine Entertainment Company.

The venue’s previous GM, Paul Sergeant, is now CEO at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne.
