Becky Colwell, previously General Manager (GM) of The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California (US) has been named as the General Manager of The Kia Forum in Inglewood, California, and Vice-President of Music and Events at the future home of the National Basketball Association (NBA) team Los Angeles Clippers – the Intuit Dome – also in Inglewood, California.

‘POLLSTAR’ stated that Colwell will be responsible for Operations and Programing of the Kia Forum as well as the Programing of the Intuit Dome leading into and following the $2 billion-plus venue’s opening in 2024.

The 5,900-capacity The Greek Theatre is an amphitheater located in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, California (US). It is owned by the City of Los Angeles and is operated by the leading venue management company ASM Global.

The 17,505-capacity The Kia Forum is a multipurpose indoor arena in Inglewood, California, United States, adjacent to Los Angeles. Located between the West Manchester Boulevard, across Pincay Drive and Kareem Court, it is North of the 70,000-capacity SoFi Stadium and the Hollywood Park Casino, and about three miles East of the Los Angeles International Airport.

The Intuit Dome is an indoor arena under construction in Inglewood, California, US. Located South of the SoFi Stadium, it will be the future home of the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association (NBA), who will be moving from their present residence – the 20,000-capacity Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.

‘POLLSTAR’ further stated that Colwell started in her new role on October 24th, reporting to Clippers President of Business Operations Gillian Zucker. The Kia Forum and the Intuit Dome are both under the ownership of Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, who purchased The Forum in 2020 in order to move forward with construction of the Clippers’ new nearby home.

Zucker said in the announcement, “Becky has earned a reputation for creating best-in-class experiences for all who step foot in the venues she leads and will help us continue to achieve new standards at The Kia Forum and Intuit Dome.”

The news comes as the previous GM of The Kia Forum Geni Lincoln joins the American global entertainment company Live Nation as the President of the company’s California region.

Colwell was previously the GM of the 7,000-capacity Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, North Carolina for 12 years and the Director of Sales for the 20,601-capacity Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, North Carolina.
