Banc of California Stadium, in tandem with Turnkey Search, announced the hire of Steve Tadlock as their new Executive Vice President and General Manager. Tadlock will report directly to Adam Friedman, President of Banc of California Stadium Entertainment and Executive Vice President of LAFC Sports.

“World class facilities deserve world class management,” said Friedman in a release. “Steve is known throughout the entertainment and sports industries as a leader in the management and operation of large entertainment properties. He not only deploys best practices, but creates them as an innovator in the space. He is equally well versed in both programming and operations and is a perfect fit for the role as we continue with our launch of the venue with a robust schedule of premium events.”  

"Operating for less than a year, the Los Angeles Football Club and Banc of California Stadium have already had global impact,” said Tadlock in a release. “The Stadium is uniquely versatile due to its ‘outdoor arena’ design and capability resulting in a wide range of programming. In addition to home matches of LAFC, we will continue to grow and host top concerts and music festivals, the greatest in exhibition sports, and branded special events. I'm honored and greatly excited to be joining this team, utilizing my industry experience to help make BOCS the venue of choice for artists, producers/promoters, and fans alike.”
