Jim Keating, Executive Director
When Jim received his MBA and began working in the fast paced, high stress world of the high tech industry, focusing on marketing and finance at companies like US Robotics, 3com and Dell, he never could have known where his life would be ten years later. 

Motivated by his passion for nature, rural living, Nordic skiing and all things recreation, Jim was seeking a career change. A frequent visitor to the valley for many years, Jim and his family always loved and appreciated the recreational amenities provided by the BCRD, experiencing many of them first hand. 

Jim believes that these experiences, his passion for recreation and his professional goals, led him to serve the Wood River Valley community as Executive Director of the BCRD. He hopes he can marry that passion for these vital recreational resources with his energy and experience to further enable the sustainability of the BCRD for everyone, always.
