eric copeland 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (9/23/13) – Global Spectrum, the management company of the Owensboro Convention Center, has announced that Eric Copeland is the newest member to join its team as the Director of Food & Beverage.
 
Copeland has over 12 years of culinary experience. His successful culinary career started in Las Vegas where he was able to study under some of the great chefs in the Las Vegas region. In 2002, Copeland returned to his hometown of Pueblo, Colo., where he assumed many positions in the culinary industry, including becoming a chef at several local gourmet restaurants.

"We are extremely excited to have Eric on our team. Having worked with Eric at the Pueblo Convention Center, I personally know how talented and dedicated Eric is to his profession. His drive and passion for the perfect food experience is second to none," said Dean Dennis, Owensboro Convention Center General Manager.
