The Atlanta Falcons has hired an NCR Corp. executive to make sure the team’s new stadium near downtown has leading-edge technology when it opens for the 2017 NFL season.
Jared Miller was named chief technology officer for AMB Sports & Entertainment Group, which includes a division that will operate the new $1.2 billion stadium. He joined the Falcons organization Monday.
Miller was vice president and general manager for travel and gaming solution management at Duluth-based NCR, a maker of ATMs, cash registers and other financial services technologies.
The new retractable-roof stadium will be just south of the Georgia Dome. Construction is expected to begin next month. (See images)
The Falcons said Miller also will be responsible for technology solutions designed to enhance the experience of fans and guests at events other than football at the new stadium.
Miller, who lives in Cumming, holds several degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, including a bachelor’s in chemical engineering, master’s in management science and a master’s in civil and environmental engineering.
Last month, the Falcons said Scott Jenkins had been named general manager of the new stadium. Jenkins had been vice president of ballpark operations for Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners.
