Canterbury Park officials announced the hiring of Randy J. Dehmer as chief financial officer.
Dehmer returns to Canterbury Park where he was employed from 2007 to 2013, serving as controller from March 2012 to August 2013. Dehmer will be leaving a position as financial controller at Clearfield, Inc. to join Canterbury on May 30.
“Randy’s familiarity with Canterbury Park made him the perfect candidate for CFO,” Canterbury Park President Randy Sampson said in a press release. “His understanding of the gaming industry and other segments of our business will be an asset as we move toward the future. I look forward to welcoming him back.”
Dehmer, 36, is a native of St. Michael and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Minnesota Duluth. He began his career at Ernst & Young, serving as senior accountant until he joined Canterbury Park.
“I am thrilled to return to Canterbury Park. They have an excellent team in place and so many valuable employees that I have worked with successfully in the past,” Dehmer said in the release. “I am excited to be back as the company continues to grow and pursue the development of its surrounding property.”
Dehmer will oversee Canterbury’s finance department as well as cash operations and purchasing.
