Expanded Scope Within Leadership Roles Sets JAC Management Group and JAC Live Up for Continued National Growth
YOUNGSTOWN, OH – JAC Management Group, a leading entertainment facilities management company in the northeast part of the United States and JAC Live, premier concert and event promoter responsible for events such as Y-Live and the grandstand entertainment at the Canfield Fair, are looking to further expand their business in markets across the U.S.
This growth will be propelled by the promotion of founding member of both organizations Ken Bigley from Vice President to Chief operating Officer and of Jordan Ryan, current executive Director of JAC Management Group’s Youngstown based properties to Vice President of both JAC Management Group and JAC Live.
Bigley’s new role as COO is indicative of the companies’ ever-expanding footprint across the country within both the theater/arena event promoting sector and the unique space/event format. His direction over the company’s operation has allowed for further business development while remaining steadfast in their focus on entertainment management and talent buying within the 2,000 to 10,000 seat range facilities. With his cumulative 2 decades of experience in the event industry, Bigley has carved the companies’ niche within the industry by building and maintaining a network of talent agencies, venues, and vendors across 15 states. This tenacity has earned JAC a position as a routine promoter within their preferred venues and a growing player in the multi-date promoting game.
Ryan’s new role as Vice President will transfer his years of building and event management experience harnessed from his lifelong exposure to the concert industry coupled with his role within JAC that started as a teenager to the companies’ presence within the venues they work with and allow them to transform new spaces into full-fledged concert venues – a challenge JAC welcomes in markets that are poised to grow rapidly. The companies’ vetted model of creating viable and profitable situations within these spaces has been enhanced by Ryan’s perspective and will be translated across the country as they explore new venue management and exclusive booking opportunities.
These promotions come on the heels of banner years for both companies. The pandemic allowed JAC to construct a foundational framework to facilitate rapid growth. Coming out of 2020 they were able to realize this growth with the execution of over 100 events annually in 2022 and 2023. This national growth follows nearly 2 decades of success in their home market of Youngstown, Ohio where they have provided high quality entertainment and expert venue management services for the entire Mahoning Valley Region.
