Lora Smith has been named as the Mountain Trails Foundation’s new executive director.

 

The longtime staffer will succeed Charlie Sturgis, who is retiring in June after years of leading the nonprofit that builds and maintains trails in Summit County.

 

Smith, an 18-year resident of Summit County, has served as the Mountain Trails Foundation’s development and resource director since 2012. She’s an avid trail runner, mountain biker and cross-country skier. 

 

According to a press release, the nonprofit’s board of directors performed an “exhaustive search” for a new executive director and chose from a pool of 30 qualified applicants.

 

Board chair Steve Perkins said the board was” blown away” at the interest and talent among the applicants for the position, but in the end, Lora’s experience, energy and knowledge were uncontested.
