MSFA gets new CEO

Rick Evans, who lead the state’s first Racing Commission, has been picked as the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority’s new CEO and executive director — the job formerly held by Ted Mondale.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Rick Evans, 68, of Medina, had been retired and on vacation in Southeast Asia when he heard about the recent troubles of the government agency that runs U.S. Bank Stadium. By the time he returned, the board’s leadership had resigned. Although they’d never met, he called interim MSFA Chairwoman Kathleen Blatz to offer his services in the top staff job and she liked him immediately.
