Spectra Announces New Staff Members for the Owensboro Convention Center and Owensboro Sportscenter

Spectra, the provider of Venue Management to the Owensboro Convention Center and the Owensboro Sportscenter, is pleased to welcome new members to their Owensboro team.

Thomas Dyer is the Operations and Custodial Manager of the historic Owensboro Sportscenter.  He is in charge of the upkeep and cleaning of the venue as well as overseeing all event setups and tear downs.  “I am excited to be joining the Spectra team,” said Thomas.  “I look forward to learning more about the events industry and continuing to grow within the organization.”

Brad Bailey joins the team as Ticketing Manager.  Brad has been with Spectra since 2019. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing and Graphic Design at Doane University in Lincoln, NE.  Ticketing has always been a passion of his, and he is very grateful to be able to bring his skills to Owensboro.  When Brad isn’t working an event, he is probably enjoying himself at one, whether that be sports or most likely music.

Kasia Koontz is the new Social Sales Manager.  She began her career in the events industry by working for the Hyatt Regency Hotel from 2001-2004 in her hometown of St. Louis, MO.  In 2004, she joined Wolfgang Puck Catering and in 2009 was promoted to Catering Sales Manager.  She later managed several restaurants including Missouri’s only Peruvian restaurant.  After getting married in 2017, Kasia moved to the Tri-State where she worked as Catering Sales Manager from 2018-2021 for ASM Global at Old National Events Plaza in Evansville, IN.  Kasia stated, “I am thrilled to be a part of the Owensboro Convention Center and am looking forward to creating positive experiences for all our guests.”
