Consultant Says Fairgrounds Hitting Smoother Waters

June 26, 2014

In recent years, the Orange County Fairgrounds property was in “battleship” mode, “firing at targets and being fired upon,” a management consultant told the Fair Board during its monthly meeting Thursday.

Those years were “political chaos,” said Bill Kelly, when taking into account the hotly contested fairgrounds sale attempt and a series of short-lived CEOs at the helm.

Now, though, the battles are winding down and the fairgrounds is transforming into a fun “cruise ship” that can be a model operation in California, said Kelly, who was hired by the Fair Board to do a wide-ranging needs assessment of the fairgrounds organization.
