After a thorough, months-long search process encompassing over 100 highly qualified applicants, Delmolino was selected and approved by the board of directors and began his new role on April 10, 2023.
“Nick’s professional background in overseeing the development of various non-profit organizations is a valuable asset, as it demonstrates his ability to manage resources effectively and to develop successful strategies for growth and sustainability,” said Jesse Ryan, Grand Teton Association board chair.
Delmolino began his career in Jackson Hole at Teton Science Schools. He worked in various capacities for over 15 years and held several positions there including senior director of marketing and communications. In 2019, Nick joined Teton Raptor Center as the advancement director, there he helped support the organization’s capital campaign and campus revitalization to build and restore the facilities at the former Hardeman Barns and Meadows in Wilson, WY. Delmolino most recently worked as the Executive Director of Institutional Advancement at Berkshire Community College in Massachusetts.
“Nick’s work in mission-based communications and local knowledge of the issues facing the area will help to guide GTA’s strategy for the future complexities facing the public land agencies in our region. He will also provide GTA with institutional knowledge as a former board member of the organization and its mission to inspire deeper connection, better understanding, and enduring support of our public lands partners,” stated Jesse Ryan.
“I am honored to be joining the committed team of staff and board at the Grand Teton Association, and I’m deeply grateful for the work April Landale has done over the past five years as executive director. I’m excited to help guide GTA in continuing its long history to enhance the interpretive experience of all who visit and to provide 100 percent of GTA’s profits to public lands” said Delmolino.
