John Tschirhart is the 2015 Elgin County Ambassador of the Year!

Elgin County is pleased to announce that John Tschirhart, owner of Tschirhart’s Fine Custom Furniture in Vienna, is Elgin County’s Ambassador of the Year for 2015.

Elgin County Ambassadors are people who volunteer their time to help promote business throughout Elgin County and actively participate in the growth and development of the County. The Ambassador of the Year is awarded based on points that are given to ambassadors for a variety of items including attendance at quarterly meetings, recruiting new members, promoting Elgin County at events, and informing the County’s Economic Development staff about new businesses and those looking to relocate within the area.
Tschirhart has over 30 years of experience in the billiard industry which he used to expand into designing and producing quality home furnishings. Tschirhart provides his customers with fine furnishings of timeless design and classic craftsmanship and has developed a reputation for high quality and dedicated service.
In 2015, Tschirhart worked to bring new Ambassadors into the fold from within our community. He also helped spread the word about Elgin County across Canada and internationally as well. Whether it is taking Elgin County Visitor’s Guides with him to international trade shows, attracting the attention of the CBC to the village of Vienna, or working with international investors to get them to invest in our community, Tschirhart has been a dedicated member of the program.
"Although relatively new to the Ambassador Program, Tschirhart has taken on the role with enthusiasm and is a prime example of what it means to be an Elgin County Ambassador," said Economic Development General Manager Alan Smith. "The County would like to thank him for his continuing efforts to fuel tourism and economic development in the region."

The Elgin County Ambassador program is open to entrepreneurs, business owners and community leaders. For more information on the program please call 519-631-1460 ext. 168 or email
