Chuck Steedman, a key figure in AEG’s recent expansion into several new venue markets, has been promoted to chief operating and development officer of AEG Facilities.

Steedman, who will continue to be based out of Los Angeles, will retain his current title of chief operating officer, overseeing the financial, content development, operational, commercial and human resources functions of AEG’s arena, stadia and convention centre division. In his new role, Steedman’s responsibilities will also increased business development opportunities, as well as “driving innovation in the areas of revenue enhancement, business intelligence, digital and social marketing and technology enhancements to AEG’s global family of venues”, says the company.

“Chuck has been a significant driver in AEG Facilities’ recent and thoughtful expansion into several new markets and territories, including our Latin America initiatives most recently in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina,” says AEG Facilities president Bob Newman.
