On behalf of the Board of Directors I am pleased to announce that Jeffrey "JB" Brier has been appointed General Manager of the Highlands Recreation District.  JB will assume the role effective Monday, December 5.

JB comes to the District with over 20 years of experience in outdoor recreation, most recently as the Ski & Ride School Director at Eldora Mountain Resort in Nederland, Colorado.  In addition to his deep experience in mountain sports, JB has concurrent experience as a P.G.A. teaching professional and as a fitness and athletic coach. JB has a passion for community building and developing programs and services that improve the well-being and quality of life for individuals of all ages.

JB holds a BS in Recreation and Park Management from Penn St. University.  He is currently completing his MS in Recreation Management through Northwest Missouri State University.  Personal interests include snowboarding, mountain biking, and weightlifting/physical training. 

In the coming weeks we will schedule "Meet and Greets" with JB.  He looks forward to getting to know the community.

Until JB assumes the GM role on Dec. 5, Mike Koenig will continue to serve as Interim General Manager.  He has the full support of the HRD Board and will continue to have full decision making authority.
