Bonanzaville, operated by the Cass County Historical Society, has named Troy White as its new Executive Director. White, who has been the general manager of Odney Fargo, will be in charge of managing the operations of Bonanzaville as well as promoting the attraction.
"With the challenges at hand and our vision for the future of Bonanzaville, we were looking for the right mix of business, leadership and marketing experience," said Brian Stavenger, Vice President of the Board of Directors. "Troy White's experience and leadership qualities are exactly what we need to move Bonanzaville forward."
White has 15 of years experience in marketing and management, most recently as the general manager of the Fargo branch of Odney, a Bismarck based marketing agency. Prior to joining Odney, White spent 12 years as the owner and president of Image Communications.
"Bonanzaville is such an understated asset to our community and region," said White. "I have always had a passion for historical preservation. When given the opportunity to combine my passion with my strengths to make a difference in my community, I had to take it."
White is a Mandan, N.D., native and graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a degree in mass communications and advertising. He, his wife Kristi and twin girls live in Barnesville, Minn., where they are currently restoring a historic home.
Bonanzaville is operated by the Cass County Historical Society, with a mission to collect, display and interpret artifacts relevant to the history and cultural heritage of the Red River Valley. It is the region's largest historical attraction with 43 buildings, and more than 400,000 artifacts.
