ABOUT

In 1999, Tom Hillgrove founded Rink Management Services. It is now one of the country’s most successful – and largest – ice rink management companies, with facilities covering the whole country. Due to the company's success in the ice rink industry, Rink Management Services now handles all types of recreation facilities from sports complexes to turf fields to aquatic centers.

The company continues to grow and believes strongly in developing and promoting talent from within. Our employees are our strongest asset, and provide depth and knowledge to the industry.

We’ve assembled a talented group of industry veterans in the key functional areas of ice skating and recreation management:
