BOK CENTER DIRECTOR OF MARKETING RECEIVES NATIONAL MARKETING AWARD
(Tulsa, Okla.) January 4, 2013 – Sarah Haertl, Director of Marketing for the BOK Center, received the 2012 Venues Today Hall of Headlines award in Marketing. Venues Today, the leading international trade publication that covers the business side of entertainment and sports, presents the prestigious awards annually in four categories: News, Bookings, Marketing and Concessions. The awards celebrate the top headline-generating individual in each category who has made a prolific impact on the entertainment industry at their companies and respective venues.

Haertl was honored for her work on a four-part trade advertising campaign she spearheaded at the SMG-managed INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan., where she worked prior to joining the BOK Center team.

“There is nothing more rewarding than to be honored for doing work you love to do,” Haertl said. “I’m very proud of my accomplishments with SMG and look forward to seeing what we can achieve at the BOK Center.”
