Prior to joining the company, which was formerly headed by his father, Don, Montgomery served two terms in the Indiana House of Representatives and also was chairman of the Indiana Public Service Commission.

Montgomery earned a bachelor’s degree from DePauw University and a law degree from the Ohio Northern University College of Law.

He lives in Celina with his wife, Suzanne. They have three sons: Jon, Mike and Scott.

“As we seek to expand our marketing efforts and our ‘footprint’, having a prominent Mercer County citizen like Bill on our Board is further evidence of our efforts to do so,” said Hoverman.

The area’s premier performing arts venue, the Niswonger, offers nationally acclaimed entertainment to over 35,000 people each year from as many as 25 states and Canada. Located at 10700 Ohio 118 in Van Wert, the Board of Directors and staff work together to uphold the mission:  To provide a premier venue for a wide variety of performing arts, concerts, lectures, meetings, and special events which will inspire, educate, and entertain residents of and visitors to Van Wert County, and to provide an economic catalyst by increasing cultural tourism, creating new jobs, and generating business for the region.
