MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation announced today the initiation of a search committee to find a replacement for David Allen, RMEF's President and CEO, whose contract expires in August 2018.
'RMEF has flourished under David's leadership for the past ten years and there is no question that he is leaving RMEF much better than he found it,' explained Philip Barrett, the Chair of RMEF's Board of Directors, 'and the end of David's tenure next August provides an opportunity for the Board to transition to a new leader to secure the continued growth and success of RMEF.'
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, with over 222,000 members, 146 employees, $93,000,000 in assets, and programs and services that touch virtually every state in the country, is one of the largest and most robust conservation organizations in the United States.
Mr. Barrett indicated that the vacancy is expected to draw interest from scores of exceptionally qualified individuals, and he noted that the committee has been formed now with the goal of enabling RMEF to conduct an exhaustive search. He added 'RMEF will issue more information at an appropriate time concerning the search as it gets underway.'
