Hancock Wildlife Foundation is very pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Pitt as the Executive Director of the Foundation.
No one knows our objectives or our trodden path better -- Richard was instrumental in gathering our cadre of web volunteers and beating the bushes the past 5 years, now he will officially lead the way, seeking direction from the Directors and devoting his major efforts to developing the programs we have embarked upon.
Many of you have personally known Richard either at the various functions or almost as intimately though the web. More will grow to know him as he embarks on the path of raising the Foundation's vista and spreading our vision to the world.
Richard brings to the Foundation a background of managerial and marketing skills, as well as his intimate knowledge of our chosen major platform, the internet. His interests in graphic media, from doing his own photo development through to creating some of the first web pages in Canada during his tenure with Canada's first ISP, Wimsey.com, have combined to give him an understanding of the power of the video images that we bring to the world in a way that allows him to see the Foundation's future clearly, and he has the skills to drive us to the goals we have set.
Over the next few weeks Richard and I will continue in our development of HWF's campaign to promote our educational objectives and outline a path to fund them.
Welcome aboard Richard -- at least, welcome aboard in a slightly different capacity! The eagles, bears and orcas also welcome Richard aboard.
Chairman of the Board.
Hancock Wildlife Foundation.
