We wish him well in his future endeavours,” said Damian Zapisocky, president and board chair of the Westerner Exposition Association.

Westerner Park Board of Directors Vice-President Bradley Williams has agreed to take a leave of absence from the Board, to assume the role of CEO on an interim basis.
