Dennis Petrullo, KFC Yum! Center

General manager
KFC Yum! Center

In Louisville, Ky., Petrullo runs KFC Yum! Center, home of University of Louisville men’s basketball, a venue with NBA-caliber amenities. He took over as general manager soon after AEG signed a contract to manage the arena in 2012. Petrullo has been with AEG since 2009, and his experience includes serving as general manager of Scottrade Center, where he ran food service for Delaware North Sportservice before switching to facility operations.

Among other standouts in the extensive AEG family:

• Chris Wright, general manager of Oracle Arena and the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, is the only individual to run buildings for NBA, NFL and MLB teams.

• Steve Rosebrook has expanded his role to become AEG’s regional general manager, covering both Barclays Center and Nassau Coliseum, which reopened this year after a $260 million renovation.
