Extensive leadership experience and passion for Lake Tahoe
Tahoe City, Calif. – The nonprofit organization Tahoe Fund recently announced that five new leaders have joined its board of directors.

“On behalf of the entire board, I warmly welcome our new board members. Each has a personal connection to Lake Tahoe that runs as deep as our mission. Their combined experience and love of this environment will be invaluable as we determine which improvement projects to support in the coming year and beyond,” said Cory Ritchie, Tahoe Fund Chairman.
In their professional roles, the new Tahoe Fund board members have built and led high-performing teams, managed large institutional relationships, and directly oversaw operations, marketing and brand strategies. Their skills will contribute to the long-term success of the organization as the reach and impact within the Tahoe Basin continues to grow.
