Beaver Creek Metro’s general manager retires
BEAVER CREEK — Beaver Creek Metro District General Manager Clyde Hanks recently announced his retirement. Hanks has served as the district’s general manager since December 2005, after serving as the executive director of the Vail Leadership Institute.
His leadership and guidance have had significant influence over the district’s services and projects in the past, present and future.
“Clyde has done a great job for the district over the last nine years,” said Lou Kreig, chairman of the district’s board. “I have personally enjoyed working with him during that time. His expertise and experience will be missed by the board and the community.”
Hanks was instrumental in the development and implementation of new landscape design improvements for Beaver Creek. That effort, called Project Legacy, is an ongoing joint project between the Beaver Creek Metro District and Beaver Creek Resort Company that includes signage, way finding, guardrails, an updated entrance and the new entry monuments noting the resort as home to three World Ski Championships among other things.
In addition Hanks was successful working closely with the Eagle River Fire Protection District to renegotiate the contract for fire protection for the Beaver Creek community. Under Hanks’ guidance, the Beaver Creek Metro District has been successful in continuing the bond issue supporting capital improvements for the Vilar Performing Arts Center, an effort which will again be on the ballot this November.
“I have truly enjoyed my time with the Beaver Creek Metro District,” Hanks said. “Its been a privilege to work in such an involved community and in conjunction with a world-class resort. I know I’ll miss it.”
Hanks currently serves as the chairman of the board for Habitat for Humanity, an organization with which he plans to stay involved. He is also an avid flyfisherman and will continue to reside in the Vail Valley.
Hanks plans to enter retirement at the end of 2014, and the Beaver Creek Metro District is currently seeking his replacement. Find out more about the job by visiting the district’s website at http://www.Beaver CreekMetroDistrict.com.
