Longmont, CO August 26, 2021--- Sustainable Resilient Longmont, a nonprofit based in Longmont, CO, announced today they have hired the organization’s first Executive Director, Ryan Schutz. Mr. Schutz brings more than two decades of experience as a nonprofit consultant and leader of volunteer-driven nonprofit organizations to this role, having worked at the intersection of social justice, transportation, and public lands access. Ryan previously served as the Executive Director of Bikes Together, a network of recyclery-style nonprofit bike shops in Denver, and oversaw building a national network of local grassroots organizations for the International Mountain Bicycling Association.
“I’m excited to bring my experience in nonprofit leadership to help Sustainable Resilient Longmont grow and build on its past successes. Longmont, like many communities across the country, is at a crossroads. We must embrace the challenge of the climate crisis with a sense of urgency. We must continue to fight for a future free from fossil fuels. We must do better when it comes to reducing waste and with it, harmful methane pollution. And we must continue to educate and engage local youth so they can become part of the movement to build a better, cleaner future. For these reasons and more, I’m enthusiastic about what we can accomplish working together,” said SRL Executive Director Ryan Schutz.
"We’re thrilled to have Ryan joining Sustainable Resilient Longmont and leading the organization to its next level of growth," said Board Chair Abby Driscoll. “As a small, local nonprofit, we’ve made the strategic decision that it was the right time to invest in an Executive Director to provide leadership on organizational fundraising, communications, as well as events and community engagement. With the growing threat of climate change affecting local air quality and threatening our community, it’s even more critical for Longmont to have an organization working at the local level on these issues,” Driscoll added.
