Clear Channel Entertainment (CCE) has named veteran arena management executive Mike McGee as executive VP of corporate operations, effective May 3.

Most recently, McGee was senior VP/business development for Aramark Corp., based in Houston.

In his new position, McGee will report to Brian Becker, CEO of CCE, also based in Houston. Becker tells Billboard.biz that "VP of corporate operations" is a "working title," and McGee's roles will be many.

"He will be part of our senior corporate executive team, serving in a variety of roles," says Becker, adding that McGee will be heavily involved in a number of CCE initiatives geared toward artists, consumers and corporate partners.

Becker says McGee will be instrumental in facilitating various CCE initiatives, such as database marketing, across the broad-based company's divisions, then in turn bringing these concepts to the corporate world through "cross-platform relationships."

McGee's resume includes stints as the GM of the Monroe (La.) Civic Center, the Lakeland (Fla.) Civic Center and the Compaq Center in Houston.

McGee is also a pioneer in the private arena management business, founding Leisure Management International (LMI) in 1984. He sold that company to Philadelphia-based private management firm SMG in 2000.

"Mike is one of the most respected individuals in his field, and his experience is extremely broad-based," says Becker.
