The executive director of Madisonville's economic development corporation is switching jobs and coming to Brazos County.
Tom Quarles took the Madisonville EDC job in January, but soon found himself being courted by Brazos County to be the new director of exposition facilities. Quarles has now taken the job.
His last day in Madisonville is July 19th. He starts in Brazos County on July 24th and will oversee both the new expo center in west Bryan and the Brazos Center.
Quarles has 20 years experience in the field. He retired as an assistant general manager of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in 2004.
