After an exhaustive and comprehensive national search process, Dan Rubin, President of the Bauercrest Board of Directors, has announced the new Executive Director: Eric Rightor.
Eric grew up in Needham's Jewish community. He graduated from American University with degrees in Public Affairs and Applied Physics. He has spent the last seven years in camping administration, including the last two summers as the Senior Director of three overnight YMCA camps in New Hampshire. In this position, Eric had responsibility for over 300 campers each session and supervised over 120 seasonal staff, including counselors, administrators, food service and medical personnel. Eric managed the operating budget, assisted with fundraising and led camper recruiting efforts. Eric is also a certified Lifeguard and has a Commercial Boating License. These are all valuable skills that Eric will put to good use as Executive Director at Bauercrest. One more fun fact - Eric successfully hiked all 2,178.3 miles of the Appalachian Trail in 2009!
