Rush Tapped By Kings

The Sacramento Kings named Aran Rush assistant general manager.

The veteran facility manager brings more than 20 years of experience with stints including VenuWorks, SMG and the city of Sioux City.

A graduate of IAVM’s Oglebay School of Facility Management, Rush also holds a certificate in executive leadership from Cornell University, a master of science in sports administration from St. Thomas University in Miami, Fla.

He joins James Rasmussen, who was hired as the Kings director of arena programming, in the front office as they prepare to build a new arena. Rasmussen was previously with ArenaNetwork for eight years.
