SMG has named Chris Anderson as the new director of facilities. Anderson will have oversight at Van Andel Arena®, DeVos Place®, and DeVos Performance Hall in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Anderson has been with SMG since 2003 with progressive responsibility, first as a maintenance technician and more recently as chief engineer. Anderson has nearly 25 years of maintenance experience, beginning his career with Prince Machine and Jefferson Commons before coming to SMG.
“I’m excited to take on this new role and continue my career with SMG,” Anderson said. “I am appreciative of the opportunity ahead of me, and I am eager to continue working with the team here as I transition into and make this role my own.”
A native of Dorr, MI, Anderson is also involved in his local community holding various head coaching positions throughout the years as well as volunteer roles at Life Change Community Church and becoming a Youth Group Leader in 2016.
“We are very pleased that Chris has agreed to become the director of facilities,” said SMG Regional General Manager at Van Andel Arena, DeVos Place, and DeVos Performance Hall Rich MacKeigan. “He has been with us a number of years, and we look forward to his continued exceptional service in his new role.”
