Nelson County, VA
The Rockfish Valley Community Center’s Board of Directors has announced the appointment of G. Stuart Mills to the newly-created position of Executive Director, effective October 1, 2012. A long-time resident of Nelson County, Mills was the co-owner of Bistro 151 in the Valley Green Center in Nellysford for seven years. Since selling that business in early 2003, he served as the Executive Director of the non-profit Northwestern Virginia Health Systems Agency, Inc. in Charlottesville, and more recently, the principal of Mills Health Care Consulting in Roseland.
In addition to sharing Center management duties with Operations Manager Sara Taylor, Mills will focus his efforts largely on the long-term growth and sustainability of RVCC, with the goal of developing the financial resources needed for building improvements and program expansion.
“I’m excited and honored to have been selected by the Board to lead RVCC in the fulfillment of its mission,” Mills said upon his appointment at the September 18th meeting of the Board of Directors. “I’m very anxious to work with the Board in refining and sequencing our short and long-term goals, and to get busy developing the resources we need to meet them.”
“Stu’s success at leading a non-profit organization, his strong local business experience and his familiarity with Nelson County makes him an ideal choice for the role of Executive Director,” said Board President Gifford Childs. “With Stu and Sara leading RVCC, our community center is well positioned for a successful future.”
