Door County Land Trust Announces Selection of the New Executive Director
The Door County Land Trust has named Tom Clay as the next Executive Director.
Through a process led by the Land Trust’s Executive Committee and a special
Search Committee, Tom was selected to represent the Land Trust in the community,
work with staff, volunteers and the board of directors, and to build
relationships with other community organizations and conservation partners. He
is currently the Executive Director of the Illinois Audubon Society, a post he
has held since 2006. Tom’s work at the Illinois Audubon Society is excellent
background as it is a non-profit organization with a similar mission to that of
the Door County Land Trust. Tom has been a leader in land protection in
Kathy Wolff, Door County Land Trust board president, said that one of Tom’s
key strengths, relationship-building, will be critical in Door County and with
the local, state and national conservation community. “Tom believes in
partnerships to get things done, and he has the skills and experience we need
for the future.”
“Tom has the passion, authenticity, charisma, and experience that we looked
for in our new Executive Director,” added Tim Stone, past president of the Land
Trust’s board of directors.
The Search Committee found Tom to be a very warm, engaging person who is
enthusiastic about the opportunity to lead Door County Land Trust. He is 55,
married with two children in their twenties. He is very excited about this
opportunity, and his family is thrilled to be moving to Door County. He will
start at the Door County Land Trust in mid-September.
