Mayor Troy A. Bennett
As an independent produce broker for the past 27 years, Troy has had an extensive career being self-employed in the produce industry. He has worked with a myriad of business people, and has a very diverse client base. He works with several large shippers, where he ships produce all over the United States. Starting in the industry working for Red’s Market in 1980, he took an interest in the business. Troy attended Valencia Community College and University of Georgia where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Business.
Being self-employed has given Troy the freedom to get involved in the communities where he has lived. When he purchased property in Montverde in 2004, he found himself immediately involved in the Home Owners Association, where he served as President for 2 years. Troy has extensive work in music and the arts and has produced many Christian concerts in the Central Florida area, with nationally known recording artists. Over the last several years, Troy has been involved with the Town, and has headed up the Montverde Day Festival. He has been attending Town Hall Meetings and has gotten involved in different committees, lending a hand where needed. Having such a passion for people and community, Troy decided to run for Mayor in 2007. Troy works and resides in Montverde with his wife Anne, and son Miles.
Troy’s other interest include church, his family and travelling.
