Roger Dixon, Metropolitan Entertainment & Convention Authority
President and CEO
Metropolitan Entertainment & Convention Authority
Dixon has spent the past 17 years in Omaha, Neb., operating both CenturyLink Center Omaha and TD Ameritrade Park, home of the College World Series. Creighton University men’s basketball, the arena’s primary tenant, remains a big draw. This past season, the Big East Conference school averaged 17,413 in home attendance, good for fifth in the nation behind four bigger arenas. Previously, Dixon developed and managed Scottrade Center, home of the St. Louis Blues, and before that he served as senior vice president and general manager of the old Spectrum in Philadelphia.
