ATLANTA - Today Governor Perdue named Ransom Moore as the next Executive Director of the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter in Perry. "Ransom Moore is a devoted employee to the state of Georgia," said Governor Sonny Perdue. "He brings a wealth of experience, and I am confident that he will be a great asset to Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter."

Moore and his wife Carlene have three children. He also serves as vice-chairman of the Houston County Planning and Zoning Commission.
"The Authority and I are very excited. Randy has been with the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter for 11 years," said James E. Sutherland, Chairman of the Georgia Agricultural Exposition Authority. "We are behind him and look forward to working with him to ensure the continued success of the facility."
