GOCO board selects Chris Castillian for Executive Director position

Tuesday, February 7, 2017 -- GOCO

To our partners and friends,

On behalf of the GOCO Board of Trustees, I’m pleased to share that we have selected Chris Castilian for the GOCO executive director position.

A native of Colorado, Chris has worked in both the private and public sectors. He brings a lengthy history of public service, including serving as deputy chief of staff for Gov. Bill Owens, as well as director of the Colorado State Board of Land Commissioners. Most recently, Chris was director of strategy and engagement for Anadarko Petroleum Corp., where he led government affairs, social investment, employee engagement, and stakeholder outreach for the Rockies region. He currently serves as a commissioner for Colorado Parks and Wildlife and is on several other boards of nonprofit organizations throughout the Denver metro area.

We’re confident Chris will bring his expertise in strategic management, government relations, and community building to GOCO and lead this organization through the implementation of our strategic plan—Protect, Connect, and Inspire. Throughout Chris’s life and work he has continued to carry a passion for the outdoors and conservation. With his combined skills and passion, he’ll be a strong leader for GOCO, and we’re excited to see how his innovative approach will help shape the organization’s future.

Please join us in welcoming Chris into the GOCO community. As always, thank you for your partnership and support and for doing the great work you do for our state.
