Ralston arena general manager ready to turn struggling venue around

RALSTON, NE (Omaha World-Herald News Service) – The new general manager of the Ralston Arena says he’s ready to turn the struggling venue around.

Brian Krajewski is two months into the job as the arena’s new general manager.

City officials in Ralston are betting that Krajewski and his company Spectra Venue Management can revive the $41 million arena, which hasn’t turned a profit since its 2012 opening.

Krajewski tells the Omaha World-Herald that the company is exploring multiple ways to generate revenue, including potentially leasing the arena’s naming rights.

City officials tell the World-Herald that they believe Spectra has things headed in the right direction.
