Charley Petrek Named Sales and Events Manager for Will Rogers Memorial Center

FORT WORTH, Texas –Charly Petrek, veteran event producer, has joined the Will Memorial Center (WRMC) sales team as Sales and Events Manager.

Petrek was formerly an event coordinator for WRMC for more than seven years, and has worked in arenas, ballparks, stadiums and multipurpose facilities during the course of her career. She will report to Jordan Steffan, who was named WRMC Director of Sales in October 2022.

“I have been on the production side of just about every kind of event imaginable, but my passion is working for the equestrian industry,” said Petrek. “I am excited to join the sales team and introduce new clients and guests to WRMC — where memories are made, champions are crowned and communities come together to enjoy family fun.”

Petrek comes from a ranching family and grew up in rodeo and the cutting horse industry. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University and is a graduate of Venue Management School at Oglebay National Training Center in West Virginia.

“We’re very fortunate to have Charly Petrek join our sales team and bring her venue experience and knowledge of the equestrian industry to our clients,” said Kevin Kemp, general manager of WRMC.
