Sophie Ozier, who previously served as assistant General Manager of the Arkansas Travelers, was promoted to interim General Manager on Tuesday.

Allen will continue to live in North Little Rock and will be working for Swagelok, an industrial supply company with offices in the city.

Ozier has been with the Travs since 2017 when she started as a corporate event planner, and became assistant G.M. in December 2020.

Others who have served as the G.M. of the Travs include Bill Valentine, who held the role for 33 years, and he was replaced by Pete Laven.

The other current front office positions remain the same.
