Evansville Otters Name New Operations Manager
The Evansville Otters have hired Andrea Wallace as their new Operations Manager. Congrats to Ms. Wallace as she begins her tenure with an iconic Evansville team!
From the Evansville Otters:
Wallace, 31, a 2006 graduate of the University of Evansville, grew up in Bloomington, Indiana. She began her career in the sports industry as Assistant Box Office Manager at The Center, now Old National Events Plaza. She quickly transitioned to Ticket Office Manager at Roberts Stadium, Victory Theatre, and Mesker Amphitheatre.
In June of 2011, shortly after marrying her husband, Nick Wallace, she became part of the inaugural Ford Center staff. In this position she gained a lot of industry knowledge as she built a ticket office and ticketing system, literally, from the ground up. Summer of 2014 she took on the responsibilities of Premium Services Manager and was able to build relationships with many business people within the Tri-State community.
While progressing her professional career, she and her husband became a host family for the Evansville Otters in 2012. While attending many Otters games the past four summers they have enjoyed getting to know the players, staff, and organization. She has a passion for many sports and particularly the Otters and Bosse Field!
“My personal experiences with the team and my professional career have led me to this position with the Evansville Otters. I look back and can see all of the ‘coincidences’ that have opened doors and given me knowledge that will help in my position as Operations Manager. I could not be more excited to work with the community, Bussing Family, and the dedicated staff and volunteers within the Otters organization to create exciting game day experiences!” says Wallace.
Andrea and Nick have two daughters, Emmalyn and Clara. She is a member of Methodist Temple and is an active member of the local Phi Mu Alumnae Chapter.
