Eastern States Exposition Vice President Sue Lavoie announced her retirement today after working 49 years with the company.
Lavoie joined the West Springfield organization in 1966 and has held the Vice President position since 1986.
ESE President and CEO, Eugene Cassidy, said, “Sue's list of accomplishments at ESE and in life is long and honorable. She is an impressive woman who worked hard to guide and mold our organization into the fifth largest fair in North America and one of the top ten economic engines in Western Massachusetts.”
Lavoie had oversight on the sales department, which is responsible for selling commercial exhibit space for The Big E.
