The Bryce Jordan Center will be getting a new person at the helm.
On Tuesday, Penn State announced Al Karosas as the new general manager of the university’s largest indoor venue.
Karosas will take over the responsibilities of Bob Howard, who oversaw the opening of the Bryce Jordan Center in 1996 and has managed the building to its present day.
Karosas, now the assistant general manager of the Jordan Center and acting general manager of Pegula Ice Arena, will take the reins from Howard, who is retiring.
Karosas, a Penn State alumnus, has a B.S. in exercise and sports science and decades of experience in arena management. He is an adjunct instructor in recreation, park tourism management at Penn State and co-director of the Penn State Coaches vs. Cancer Committee.
The Jordan Center will celebrate 20 years of hosting sporting and entertainment activities in January.
