David Kells (Twitter: @DKnaround) has been with Bridgestone Arena and the Nashville Predators since 2005. During his tenure he has served as the Conversion Manager, Event Manager, Director of Marketing and is currently the Senior Vice President of Booking.

David quickly developed a passion for live entertainment after working his first concert at the age of 18.  Over the course of his career he has worked for SFX Entertainment, Great Big Shows, and AC Entertainment.  David has been involved in producing such festivals as Dancin' In the District (Nashville, Tenn.), Sundown in the City (Knoxville, Tenn.), Sewanee Bound Music Festival (Live Oak, Fla.) and Birmingham City Stages (Birmingham, Ala.).

In addition to helping oversee Bridgestone Arena’s rise to one of the top venues in the U.S. and the 2014 Pollstar Arena of the Year award, Kells has received personal recognition for his hard work in the industry.

A lover of hockey from a young age, David’s hockey career peaked in 1980 when he received the Most Improved Player Award from the Massena Minor Hockey Association.
