Reston Association moves one step closer to hiring new CEO

The organization’s board moved one step closer to selecting.a new CEO.

The top leadership position at Reston Association — which has sat cold since September — may soon be filled.

At a meeting Wednesday night (April 6), RA’s Board of Directors unanimously supported a measure to approve reimbursement of travel expenses for finalists being considered for the position.

Since former CEO Hank Lynch stepped down to take the same position at a nonprofit focused on protecting endangered species, Larry Butler has temporarily shifted from the organization’s chief operating officer to acting CEO.

Three senior leadership vacancies remain: the human resources director, a senior level environmental position, and an IT director.

The goal of the meeting, which was largely held in executive session, was to identify candidates for a final round of interviews. The board aims to select a new CEO before the final results of RA’s board election are announced.

Board members John Mooney, Tom Mulkerin and Aaron Webb are set to step down this month.

The timing of the move has drawn criticism by some who called on RA to delay the selection of the new CEO until after the election to give new board members a voice in the selection process.
