Tresco Boutard – Program Manager / Road Producer

After several years as a lead mechanic at the Bondurant School in Chandler, Arizona, Tresco accepted a road producer position with with the PFG in 2011. Although Tresco certainly “paid his dues” by driving the support van for shows all over the United States, it quickly became apparent that he is a person of diverse talents. His skill as a designer and fabricator and his exceptional work ethic has helped PFG to become more efficient, and as a consequence our clients benefit from a more professional presentation on the road.

Tresco’s main duties include on-the-road management of Ford Driving Skills for Life teen driver education program, as well as management of the Barrett Jackson ride and drive instructor team and producing the Ford ride and drive program at the annual Las Vegas autoshow. When not on the road, Tresco leads the charge in preparation for the road programs and handles all design and fabrication work at the PFG corporate headquarters.

If and when problems arise on programs, Tresco’s uncommon level of common sense makes him the go-to person for setting the situation right.
