Oklahoma City, OK – ASM Global, the premier venue management and services company, announced the addition of Jordan Racine to their team in Oklahoma City as Director of Programming for Paycom Center, home to NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder. Racine will oversee and coordinate all aspects of the entertainment and booking strategy for the 19,000-seat arena.

“We are extremely excited to add a person with Jordan’s experience to our incredible team in Oklahoma City,” said General Manager Chris Semrau. “His knowledge and industry relationships will accelerate the already strong event calendar of the must-play facility in the region.”

Most recently, Racine was the Vice President of Booking at the Los Angeles-based venue consultant, Venue Coalition, a network of 100 arena venues across North America. There, he oversaw booking strategy and operations, and secured over four-hundred events for its clients. Racine first joined Venue Coalition as a Booking Assistant in 2016 and climbed the ranks of the organization during his tenure.

Racine first joined the entertainment industry as an intern for James Taylor during a 2015 US Tour while studying at Lyndon State College (now Northern Vermont University). He was named a recipient of International Association of Venue Managers’ (IAVM) 30 Under 30 award in 2020.

Adding Racine to the elite team in Oklahoma City will set Paycom Center up for continued success in the future. The arena has already hosted a-list acts like Elton John, Morgan Wallen, and Journey so far in 2022 with a full list of big shows and announcements yet to come.
