Moving on: Margolin, Barclays Center head of food and beverage services, leaves for Anaheim arena

From the Anaheim Blog, 5/15/13, Honda Center Hiring 500 Employees for New Food and Beverage Co.; Julie Margolin Named Director of Food & Beverage Services:
ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 14, 2013) – The Honda Center announced today its plan for hiring more than 500 workers to become part of an industry-leading sports and entertainment organization. Interested parties are urged to go online to to apply for a position and schedule an interview. Thousands of applicants are anticipated and appointments will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning immediately.
...Leading the new food and beverage operation will be Julie Margolin, the venue’s new director of food and beverage services. Margolin most recently worked for Levy Restaurants at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. There she was part of the opening team, oversaw the food and beverage service for that facility and launched a number of unique programs which saw unprecedented success during their first year. Prior to that time, Margolin was an integral part of the food and beverage operations at STAPLES Center and Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Universal CityWalk.
I doubt Margolin has quite the array of local vendors--from newfangled to classic to ethnic--to work with in Anaheim as she did in Brooklyn, though there are certainly a substantial number.

But her departure hints that others who manage the Barclays Center may be recruited by other arena operators. Just not the person responsible for sound insulation.
