It’s with great pleasure that we announce the hiring of Tom Jones as the new General Manager of Markham Fair.

Tom was recently employed as the Facility Coordinator, Markham Pan Am Centre for the City of Markham.  He was responsible for the day-to-day operation of the 147,000 sq.ft. facility, featuring a triple gymnasium, fitness centre and 50 metre Olympic size swimming pool.  He was part of the Project Team in the final stages of the build for the 2015 Pan Am Games and the opening of this state-of-the-art building to the public in October, 2015.  After the games were over he helped coordinate and assist in the smooth transition to a City owned and operated building.

Tom was recently asked, “What makes you well suited to Markham Fair?:

As a Markhamite for the majority of my life, I realize the importance of the fairgrounds to the community and the people of Markham.  Having worked for the City for the past 5 years I feel I have develop some strong relationships within the community that will help with the growth of the fairgrounds.

Please join us in welcoming Tom to the Markham Fair family.  We look forward to working together to achieve our mission.
