Mark J. Wenger to the ATC

The 4 January 2012 Virginia Gazette from Williamsburg, Virginia brings the news that "Mark J. Wenger, who for more than 30 years has worked for Colonial Williamsburg, is leaving the foundation to become executive director of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy."

Wenger is a life member of both the Tidewater Appalachian Trail and Old Dominion Appalachian Trail clubs, and has served in various offices of the Tidewater Club. Even more to his credit, Wenger is a 2,000 miler, having finished an 8 year, 3 month section hike last August.

Wenger replaces long-time ATC executive director David Startzell in February.

One other thing: Wenger is a licensed architect ... so maybe all the shelters are going to get upgrades under his watchful eye.

The article is not by-lined but is titled "CW exec takes over Appalachian Trail Conservancy."
