Lance Climie, who is a Certified Club Manager, entered a ‘personal services agreement,’ with the city.
According to Connie Bohatch, the managing director of community services, Climie will “manage and supervise daily operations.”
Climie was most recently the manager in Rockford at Reds on the River.
While the 2013 season is his initial focus, Bohatch said, Climie will help prepare for 2014. That includes “identifying proposed operational changes, developing the budget, creating marketing and communication materials.”
