AEG and MGM have entered into a joint venture agreement to develop a 20,000 seat arena in Las Vegas. As the lead for AEG in Las Vegas, Faber’s primary responsibility is to secure partners for the venue including the Naming Rights, Founding Partners and Premium Inventory. Prior to this, Faber was based at AEG’s arena in Kansas City, Sprint Center, and was responsible for revenue generation including naming rights, sponsorships and premium seating for the Midwest Region.
Faber brings 20-plus years of experience in the sports and entertainment industry to his role at AEG. Faber began his career as an intern in the ticket office with the Orange Bowl Committee in Miami, Florida, and was promoted to Ticket Manager. In 1989, he joined the Dallas Cowboys to help direct sales efforts for sponsorships, events, hospitality, and luxury suites at the Cowboys’ Texas Stadium and Training Camp. During the next five years, the Cowboys won back-to-back World Championships in Super Bowls XXVII and XXVIII, and Faber added the duties of being on the post-season advance team for NFC Championship games and Super Bowls. In 1995, Faber left the Cowboys to pursue additional opportunities in sports with Liberty Media (now FOX Sports), and has subsequently held senior-level positions with Host Communications, Galles Indy Racing, PSP Sports, and Learfield Sports.
