Corey Margolis will be the facility’s new General Manager. According to Spectra, Margolis relocated to Everett from the Spectra managed Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario. In his new role as General Manager, he will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of Angel Of The Winds Arena including booking, finance, events, box office, marketing, client relations, and corporate sales for the Arena, Edward D. Hansen Conference Center and the Everett Community Ice Rink.

“We are pleased to welcome Corey to our team in Everett,” stated Gary Weikel, Everett Public Facilities District Board President. “We look forward to seeing his leadership in action at Angel Of The Winds Arena and his demonstrated ability to attract exciting new events. The Everett Public Facilities District Board of Directors is confident we have selected the individual best suited to fulfill our goals.”


2017 was not a banner year for the arena in downtown Everett.

The Everett Public Facilities District and Spectra are two and a half years into a five year agreement for operations at the arena. Last month the board approved an amendment to the management agreement that Board President Weikel told would put the building in a good position for the future. A Spectra representative told the board at their May meeting that they were going to get the operation turned around and thanked the board for another chance.

Below is a copy of the May 2018 amendment between Spectra and the Everett PFD that outlines the process for a new general manager and also requires additional marketing and corporate sales services be provided by Spectra to benefit the arena. It also adds a clause that beginning in 2018 through the end of the contract, for any year there is a net loss the management company will rebate to the Public Facilities District a portion of its fixed management fee.

After a rough 2017 things are looking up financially for the arena after the success of the Everett Silvertips season. One item currently looming is the negotiation of the renewal for the Silvertips. The contract between the team as anchor tenant and the arena officially expired in March but the two are reportedly close to a long term extension.
