Shenandoah National Park Trust

The Shenandoah National Park Trust (SNPT) is the official philanthropy serving the Shenandoah National Park. SNPT invests in programs and initiatives which help ensure it maintains its status as a crown jewel of our nation's national parks. When SNPT needed a strong, new executive director, their board leadership turned to CapDev. We searched until we found just the right fit, and Susan Sherman remains in Charlottesville, serving as president, since 2009.

"We couldn't have been more delighted with how thoroughly Capital Development Services managed the search process. The CapDev team handled every aspect of the process and kept our committee updated on a regular basis. When our first round of interviews failed to turn up the right candidate, the CapDev team went right back to work and we interviewd three great candidates a mere month later. We are convinced that Susan will be a terrific ED."  - Peter Rice, Chairman, Board of Directors

"I am pleased to say that Susan's experience, skills and qualities fit those described in the job description about as perfectly as can be imagined!" -
