Chad Eischens, the general manager at Braemar athletic facilities, spent nine years as an activities director and community education director before his current position. “There’s been a sharp learning curve” for the past several months, Eischens says. Since he started the job, he’s been learning more about the day-to-day operations and administrative work. He has also learned a lot from his staff to help him become the most effective manager possible. Eischens is essentially in charge of everything that happens at the rink, field and dome—including driving the Zamboni. A fun fact about Eischens? “I’ve never downloaded a song.”
