SearchWide Global has been retained by the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) to conduct an executive search to find their next General Manager. The BJCC is more than just a venue for conventions and trade shows, it is a magnet for the local community too. As one of the city’s premier gathering places, it is where conventions, tradeshows, concerts, Broadway shows, local meetings, banquets, educational, cultural, religious and social functions are held on behalf of all members of the community.
The General Manager will lead the managers/directors that oversee sales, service and operations of the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex (convention center, PAF’s, and arena). This position will develop strategy for achieving customer service, sales and operational goals while providing highly responsible and complex administrative support to the Executive Director & CEO of the BJCC Authority. A bachelor’s degree is preferred, however, an equivalent combination of academic education, industry education and/or certifications, plus at least eight years of leadership experience may substitute for the degree requirement. GM or AGM (or like) experience within a convention center is highly desired.
