Fair CEO Troy Bowers Officially Retires

After 12 dedicated years, Amador County Fair CEO Troy Bowers has officially retired. While the Fair Board accepted Bowers’ official resignation in August, he technically retired in 2013, and has worked as the Fair’s CEO the past 6 years as a part-time retired annuit.    Within 12 months of taking the position as Amador Fair CEO, the 2008 recession hit and all State funding to the network of fairs was eliminated and the Amador County Fair’s budget was reduced by 30%. This led to major reorganization of staff, and exhibit department programming, and increased fair time and year-round rental fees across the board.  Through it all, Bowers continued to work on finding alternative funding sources though community sponsorships programs and the funding of the Amador Fair Foundation.  During his tenure at CEO, Bowers oversaw a number of infrastructure projects and improvements to the Fair over all. Bowers has also been an active member of the Amador community including, Past President of the Plymouth Foothills Rotary, serving on both the Amador County Chamber of Commerce and the Amador Arts Council Board of Directors.  Bowers also served as President of the Western Fair’s Association in 2015. In full retirement, Bowers plans to spend time traveling g with his wife Suzy and still plans to haunt the Amador fairgrounds now and then too.
