PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Two executives with the Rhode Island Convention Center Authority have been placed on administrative leave during a performance audit by the state auditor ordered by lawmakers, according to a WPRI-TV report.

Former Rhode Island State Police Capt. James Demers, director of security, and Assistant General Manager Amanda Marzullo Wilmouth are on leave.

The station left messages with both.

The authority is a quasi-public agency that operates the Rhode Island Convention Center, the Dunkin' Donuts Center arena, and Veterans Memorial Auditorium.

The audit was ordered by the General Assembly's Joint Committee on Legislative Services.

“The scope of the audit will include, but not be limited to, the various administrative functions of the Convention Center Authority including purchasing, finance and personnel," Auditor General Dennis Hoyle wrote in the letter to the authority.

The authority's day-day operations are run by ASM Global, a venue management company.

James McCarvill, the authority’s executive director, said the personnel issues are in the hands of ASM.

Larry Lepore, the Convention Center’s general manager, referred all questions about Demers and Wilmouth to ASM. A call to an ASM executive was not immediately returned.
