Chesapeake Energy Arena
In Oklahoma City, Lombardi recently marked his first year with SMG after spending six years at TD Garden as the Boston arena’s senior vice president and general manager. At the OKC Thunder’s home, he delivered Paul McCartney and Lady Gaga this year as part of an effort to drive more concert business to the midmarket arena. Lombardi got his start at the Palace of Auburn Hills in 1989, before running NHL arenas in Tampa and Nashville.
