Alumna Beth Paul Appointed General Manager of Bon Secours Wellness Arena
Presbyterian College alumna Beth Paul has been appointed general manager of the Bon Secours Wellness Arena by the Greenville Arena District Board of Directors.
Paul is an Anderson, S.C. native who graduated from Presbyterian College in 1999. She has served as the Arena’s interim general manager since November and has worked with the Arena for over nine years as its assistant general manager and director of finance.
Prior to becoming the director of finance at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, she was the director of finance at the Harbor Yard Arena (now Webster Bank Arena) in Bridgeport, Conn.
At a press conference hosted at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena earlier this month, Paul said, “I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead this great organization. I look forward to contributing to the expansion of event programming and continuing to work with the dedicated Arena staff to provide exciting entertainment options and excellent customer service.”
Paul is the only female general manager of an arena in South Carolina and one of only a handful in the country.
The Bon Secours Wellness Arena, known locally as “the Well,” opened in 1998 as the BI-LO Center. Over the years, the arena has hosted such music legends as Elton John, George Strait, Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles and Kenny Chesney. Family favorites include the annual Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, Winter Jam, and sporting events, including Greenville Road Warriors hockey games.
