Rusty Mabe

Senior Vice President of Guest Experience

Rusty Mabe is a native of Gray, Tennessee, and a graduate of East Tennessee State University. Like his father Coach Mabe, Rusty has an eye for the little details that elevate an experience from great to “Whoa!”

Rusty is an entrepreneur in his own right, having operated a mobile DJ business for many years. Rusty’s greatest passion in life is bringing people together and creating fun experiences, so you might say he’s the perfect man for the job when it comes to planning how FACE creates fun experiences for our guests.

Rusty is an early adopter of all things technology and keeps everyone at the FACE Support Center up to date with the latest and greatest technology advancements. Rusty coordinates FACE’s research and development efforts and is constantly on the lookout for the next big thing. Rusty serves as a liaison for our many product vendors and helps coordinate rollout of new attractions with a customer-centric approach that puts the guest at the center of the experience.

When not working, Rusty enjoys spending time with his Wife Katie and their two children. Rusty enjoys traveling when he’s not cheering for his Alma Mater, the East Tennessee State University Buccaneers.
