Reston Association’s months-long search for CEO delayed

Reston Association’s search for a leader to head the association has been extended to May.

The announcement comes as the association’s Board of Directors said it planned to hire a CEO soon after new board members took office after elections in mid-April.

The position has been vacant since September after former CEO Hank Lynch resigned in August after a little over four years with the organization. RA’s chief operating officer Larry Butler has been serving as acting CEO since then.

RA declined to comment on why the application deadline was moved to May 9 after the association had interviewed applicants and discussed the search process in several closed session meetings.

The association also declined to comment on the number of applications it has received, and how many applicants moved to the final round of discussions.

“The RA Board is continuing their search for a new CEO, and they have extended the application deadline to May 9,” RA spokesperson Mike Leone told FFXnow in an email. “The decision to continue the search is a personnel matter. RA does not comment publicly on contractual or personnel matters.”

In mid-March, finalists were interviewed, but no decision was made.

At the time, Leone told FFXnow that the board hoped to complete the hiring process in early April before the next board was seated.

Consulting firm Baker Tilly has been conducting a nationwide search for the next CEO. The position is advertised with an annual salary in the mid-$200,000s.
