Reston Association has a new chief operating officer to fill shoes long held by Larry Butler, who retired this year after more than 40 years with the association.

Peter Lusk took Butler’s place effective today (Monday), RA announced in a newsletter on Friday (July 7).

RA said Lusk brings more than 14 years of experience in facility operations, assessments, repair and replacement.

For one year, Lusk served as the first COO of national family law firm Whitbeck Bennett. Prior to that, he worked with Arlington County as the division chief for athletic and facilities services and a facility operations manager, according to his LinkedIn page.

RA said Lusk’s experience with “the fast-paced and very engaged Arlington community” helped prepare him to make “a smooth transition to the Reston community.”

“I am humbled and excited to begin serving as the new Chief Operating Officer for the Reston Association,” Lusk wrote in a statement. “I look forward to meeting the community, learning Reston, and building new relationships.”

Lusk has a master’s degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University and is a project management professional through the Project Management Institute.

RA CEO Mac Cummins said he looks forward to working with Lusk.

“His background is an excellent fit for us as the community interest around facility planning and renovation becomes more front and center,” Cummins wrote in a statement.
