Tahoe Fund names new board chairman
July 19, 2013
Timothy Cashman has been named the chairman of the Tahoe Fund board of directors.
Cashman takes over the position from Cindy Gustafson, who will remain a board member of the organization.
The Tahoe Fund is the first and only nonprofit in the Tahoe Basin dedicated to raising money for environmental improvement projects, according to a press release. Now entering its third year in service to the Tahoe environment, the organization also announced the appointments of Founders Circle donors Bill Rock, chief operating officer of Northstar California, and Scott Gillespie, principal of Sandbox Studio, to its board of directors.
"As a life-long Nevadan, Tahoe has always been a very special place for me and my family," Cashman stated in a press release. "I am honored and thrilled to lead this bi-state organization as we continue to expand our reach and service to Tahoe's extraordinary environment on all sides of the Lake."
Cashman is involved in the Nevada and Utah Harley-Davidson dealerships and currently serves on the governing board of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. He is also on the board of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, the Nevada Taxpayers Association and other business and community organizations, the release stated.
Rock has been involved in groundbreaking habitat management planning. Vail Resorts, owner of Northstar California, has been a supporter of the Tahoe Fund since inception, raising more than $45,000 annually through dollar donations from their guests.
Gillespie is an award-winning designer of homes in the Tahoe region, the release stated. He has designed more than 120 homes in the Tahoe and Truckee region, and was recently the recipient of a TRPA "Best in the Basin" award. A resident of the area for nearly 20 years, Gillespie is passionate about Tahoe and the work the Tahoe Fund is doing to improve the lake's clarity and recreational opportunities.
