Tammy Koolbeck, executive director of Stephens Auditorium in Ames, was recently recognized by Pollstar and VenuesNow as a 2021 Women of Live honoree. Pollstar and VenuesNow are trade publications for the concert industry and this is the first year the two organizations merged their honorees into one list. Koolbeck is joined by other female executives across the U.S. in the entertainment industry, including representatives from the Grand Ole Opry, the Dallas Cowboys, Walt Disney World, WWE and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“I have had the immense pleasure of knowing and working with Tammy for over 25 years. She is an integral leader in our organization as well as our entire industry,” said Steve Peters, VenuWorks president, in a news release. “Tammy recently worked tirelessly to lead the efforts to secure federal relief for public assembly facilities closed due to the pandemic. Her successful work helped to expand eligibility for stimulus funds.”
