Spectra, the providers of venue management and food services and hospitality to the Owensboro Convention Center and the Owensboro Sportscenter is pleased to announce the promotions of Heather Terry (pictured left) and Cody Ball (pictured right).
Terry has been promoted to director of sales for the Owensboro Convention Center and the Owensboro Sportscenter. Terry started her career with Spectra as a sales manager in 2015. When Spectra was awarded the contract for the Owensboro Sportscenter in September 2016, she became a sales manager for that property as well. Her primary responsibility in her new role will be to book conventions and special events while overseeing the sales team.
Prior to her work with Spectra, she worked as an inside sales manager for Dell, Inc. as well as a supervisor at Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, both in Nashville, Tenn.
Terry graduated from Kentucky Wesleyan College with a Bachelors in Communications with an emphasis on Public Relations and Advertising. She also has an Associate’s Degree from Owensboro Community and Technical College in Organizational Communications.
Ball has been promoted to operations manager at the Owensboro Convention Center. Ball joined the Spectra team in 2017 as a housekeeping lead and quickly transitioned over to setups and AV, including the new videoboards at the Owensboro Sportscenter.
“We look forward to great things from Cody in his future with Spectra,” says Allen Herzog, director of operations.
