The Board of Directors of the San Joaquin County Fair is looking for a new CEO for the San Joaquin County Fair.
Hiring a new chief executive officer is seen as a critical piece to turning around the fair, which saw a severe drop in attendance and revenue last summer, the board said.
“The fair is currently threatened by negative cash flow and there is a short period of time to turn things around. The current business model does not work and change is needed,” said the posting for the job.
The position is budgeted for 25 to 30 a week. The salary is $60 per hour.
Details of the job:
The ideal candidate is someone with extensive management and administrative skills who has the proven ability to work for, and provide leadership to staff and a nine-member Board of Directors appointed by the governor. The candidate is capable of Working collaboratively with the Board and staff to develop a vision that sets a new course for the Fair and Fairgrounds, which may include new sources of revenue through better marketing and brand development, and identifying efficiencies to reduce costs. The ideal candidate knows the San Joaquin community and can effectively access and communicate with community representatives and local and state officials. The candidate understands that time is of the essence and is available to start immediately.
