WWE is looking to hire a General Manager for the new Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, which is scheduled to open early next month. Here’s the official job listing from the WWE Corporate website:
WWE is a publicly-traded, global entertainment company with more than 700 employees. WWE’s PG, family-friendly programming is broadcast in more than 150 countries and 30 languages and reaches more than 650 million homes worldwide. In 2012, WWE had nearly $500 million in revenue and our flagship program, Monday Night Raw, is consistently a top-rated program on cable and is the number-one rated program on USA Network. WWE is also a global leader in social and digital media with more than 160 million social media followers. WWE is committed to leveraging the power of its brand and platforms to help address important social issues worldwide including diversity and inclusion, education and military support as well as providing hope to those in need. WWE is a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment, and we encourage all employees to treat every day like it’s the first day on the job, share new ideas, ask questions, respect each other, and, of course, have fun.
The General Manager will be based in Orlando, FL and will oversee our new state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center which consists of 75+ Superstars and 8-10 full time WWE employees. At WWE, Talent are our most valuable resource–the heart and soul of our business–without which we would not be the global entertainment juggernaut that we have become today.
