Saadeh Joins Prudential Center

Sean Saadeh, who recently left his role as chief talent buyer at Brooklyn’s , has reemerged as the head of the entertainment division at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Saadeh, who brought acts like U2The Rolling Stones, and  to his previous venue, joins Prudential after it has seen its best season of its seven-year history, with 32 sold-out shows.

“I am thrilled to join Prudential Center as it takes the next step in growing its already impressive business,” Saadeh said. Saadeh has 20 years’ experience in the business, with four at Barclays, which formed an advisory group in December that would offer guidance on programming strategy and other direction for the Brooklyn arena.
