Growing up in Lethbridge and graduating from the University of Lethbridge allowed Mike Warkentin to understand the unique sense of place that Lethbridge has. After graduating with an MBA in Sport Management from san Diego State University, Mike returned to Canada and became the General Manager of Rexall Place for Northlands in Edmonton, AB. This experience with one of the oldest agricultural socieities in Canada taught him about the importance these groups have in the community and the extensive economic impact they can produce. During this time, Mike had the opportunity to work on and create some of the country's largest events, including Edmonton Oilers Hockey, the Canadian Finals Rodeo, the Davis Cup, not to mention countless marquee music events. In 2018, Mike returned to Lethbridge to work for Exhibition Park and has been tirelessly working to redefine how Exhibition Park serves the region. "Lethbridge is uniquely positioned to showcase the agricultural production and processing sector, while providing entertainment, cultural and commercial opportunities for all of Southern Alberta and Canada." In 2018, Mike also founded Three-Sixty Leadership, a predicitive analytics firm focused on delivering quantitative results to the Sports and Entertainment industry.
