The interim board and Acting CEO have started the ground work for renewal, now it's up to a brand new general manager to get Mosaic Place and Yara Centre back on track.

The Downtown Facility and Field House Board has announced that Graham Edge has been hired as their new GM after more than a year of going without. Edge comes to Moose Jaw after having served as the vice president of food and beverage for Evraz Place with some experience helping with the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

It was 2016 when Scott Clark left the top position for another job in Alberta and just two months after his departure that a critical report was released, questioning his financial management abilities. The report also said the board put too much trust in Clark after his early success and failed to follow up on performance checks.

Acting CEO Ted Schaeffer said Monday evening after presenting the DFFH budget to councillors that a big part of their game plan to increase revenues and find efficiencies will be having a set of eyes on the day to day operations, focused on nothing but the two facilities.  Schaeffer was tossed into the mix as his full time job is Director of Parks and Recreation and the DFFH falls under that umbrella.

"We'll probably expect some very detailed reporting from the general manager to be kept up on that, making decisions regarding events and the board has taken a more active role in that." said Schaeffer.

While his background has been largely food and beverage services, Edge says he has some team experience when it comes to booking events and talent so he's looking forward to getting to apply that to his new job.  But first, he wants to learn about what he's getting into.

"My 30 day plan is to simply keep my mouth closed and to listen, to read and to learn and to see what's happening," said Edge. "Once you get in there, there's the obvious things but once you peel back the layers and you're like 'Oh, that's not working. I didn't see that right away' sort of thing."

Edge says he's made a number of contacts over his career that he hopes he'll be able to draw on across North America to make things easier. His first day will be Monday as he officially takes the title of DFFH General Manager.
