Bill Hanson has rejoined Bowling Management Associates in southwest Florida as Chief Operating Office.
Hanson was originally hired by BMA as a center manager in 2000, then became Director of Operations before leaving in 2010. That year, he purchased All-Star Lanes, a center owned by BMA, but it suffered a devastating fire in October.

That prompted Pat Ciniello, President of Bowland Centers, to bring Hanson back into the company.
“Bill has proven himself greatly over the years with our organization,” said Lisa Ciniello, Bowland’s Vice President. “His skill set and experience are just what we need at this point in our business.”
Bowland Centers are bowling-based entertainment facilities in the Florida communities of Naples, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres and Port Charlotte. The company also operates Headpinz-branded entertainment facilities in Cape Coral and Fort Myers.
“This is a tremendous challenge for me personally to continue to grow with one of the leading companies in our industry,” said Hanson.
