Pearson most recently was the general financial manager for Dickerson Group, LLC, of Las Cruces, which owns The Game Sports Bar and Grill, Hurricane Alley Bar, Dickerson’s Catering and the Sports Skills Institute.
Kuenstler said Pearson holds a Bachelor of Science degree from New Mexico State University and has 21 hours toward a Master’s in Business Administration.
Pearson is assuming the position of Starmax general manager this week. As a county employee, he will report to Kuenstler, who was named Starmax Managing Member at a special commission meeting Tuesday.
Previously, the county contracted the management of the facility to an outside entity – most recently American Family
Reportedly, all current Starmax employees will have to reapply to maintain their current position with the new management team beginning October 1st. Persons hired will be employed by an LLC – or Limited Liability Company – instead of by the county.
