South Florida Fair honors outgoing CEO and announces staff changes


Rick Vymlatil is moving on after a successful 37-year career in the fair industry. A Certified Fair Executive, he has served as the president & CEO of the South Florida Fair & Palm Beach County Expositions, Inc. since July 2004. Vymlatil began his fair career in November 1982 as assistant general manager of the South Florida Fair. He also served as manager of the St. Lucie County Fair in Fort Pierce


for almost three years and as executive director of the Florida State Fair in Tampa for eight years. In 2018, he served as the IAFE chair. “The South Florida Fair and its employees and volunteers have been a wonderful second family to me and I’m proud


of what we’ve all been able to accomplish during my time here,” said Vymlatil. History is being made with Vymlatil’s replacement. For the first time in the South Florida Fair’s 107-year history, a


woman is now serving as the President & CEO. Vicki Chouris, CFE, has been with the South Florida Fair since 1985. Chouris said, “Rick set a great example of what leadership should be and I’m looking forward to leading our staff of


more than 50 employees. It’s an honor to serve in this capacity, especially knowing that I’m the first woman who has been appointed to this position.” Additional staff changes include the addition of Becky Brashear, CFE, as the new business development director. A


veteran fair professional for three decades, Brashear most recently was the chief operating officer at The Maryland State Fair in Timonium and served as the IAFE’s chair in 2017. Other changes in the new organizational structure include Rita De Mier-Lincoln, director of brand management; Mat-


thew Daly, CFE, director of operations; Cindy Bennett, director of finance; and Paige Poole is in the new position of edu- cation and community relations manager. Matt Wallsmith will continue in his role as vice president. Also new to the team is Meghan Garcia, agricultural and livestock area manager.
