Staff

Tom Jones: General Manager

General Manager Tom Jones has learned that to be successful, his staff must function as a team. And after almost 32 years with the CWFR, teamwork has become the top priority of every staff member. As the team leader, Tom encourages open communication and camaraderie, which creates an atmosphere in which staff members can share ideas and provide honest feedback. In fact, it was at the suggestion of a staff member that Tom and his crew were able to re-envision fencing for bulls during rodeos, dramatically increasing efficiency and speed during set-up and tear-down. And while Tom considers his staff family, that doesn’t mean they are exempt from his elaborate pranks.


Fair Indulgence: Ice cream of any kind
Least-Suspecting Prank Targets: Rodeo clowns

Brian Rohrbeck: Grounds Supervisor

As the Grounds Supervisor, Brian Rohrbeck considers himself the “grease on the Fair and Rodeo wheel.” Working as a team alongside the General Manager and five employees, the grounds crew will go to any and all lengths to ensure that clients’ expectations are exceeded. Brian believes that every element of every event matters, and this attention to detail allows him to plan and prioritize and execute clients’ visions. Brian is constantly bouncing from place to place, as his responsibilities are across the entirety of the Fairgrounds. This seems fitting for him, since he and his wife have a passion for traveling that have led them all over Colorado and Utah and as far away as Ireland.

Angela Berry: Marketing and Promotions Director

Even before she worked for the Central Wyoming Fair and Rodeo, Marketing and Promotions Director Angela Berry was involved with the rodeo; for years, she sung the National Anthem. While she still coordinates National Anthem singers and occasionally sings herself, her involvement with the fair is critical to its success. Her responsibilities include securing sponsorships, booking talent, maintaining CWFR’s website and social media outlets just to name a few! When Angela isn’t busy at work (which is rare, since both rodeo attendance and fair sponsorships have increased during her tenure), she enjoys all things Wyoming and spending time with her family!

Peggy Darling : Administrative Assistant

Peggy is more than a gatekeeper to customers — she’s the liaison between staff and clients. Her primary responsibility is to communicate the needs of clients to staff members, and she is so effective that customers are often surprised by how smoothly their event at the Fairgrounds runs. Asking the the right questions in the planning stages is key to ensuring that the rest of the staff shares the client’s vision of an event.

Debbie Siedschlag: Bookkeeper / Accounts Payable

While the rest of the staff is usually spread across the Fairgrounds throughout the duration of the CWFR, you can find Bookkeeper Debbie in her office, sifting through stacks of paperwork. Throughout the year, Debbie e is responsible for the books, including payroll, bank reconciliations and deposits. During the fair, the staff increases to hundreds of people, so payroll grows exponentially, and so do the piles of records and checks Debbie oversees. Additionally, 4H and rodeo winners rely on Debbie to collect their winnings. .
