We are pleased to announce that Kevin Brandt is the Foundation's new Development Director for Virginia. 

Based in Lynchburg, Brandt was previously the project manager for the Foundation, serving as a liaison between the organization and National Park Service (NPS) to shepherd projects to completion, including the rehabilitation of Flat Top Manor at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park and The Bluffs Restaurant at Doughton Park. Brandt will support community outreach and fundraising in the commonwealth. 

“I am thrilled to be expanding my role with the Foundation, which will allow me to help my fellow Virginians connect and support the national park we all love,” Brandt said. “Whether it’s the views, the hikes, or sharing a leisurely drive with friends and family, we are lucky to have such a special place in our backyards.”

Brandt joined the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation team after four decades with the NPS. He retired after serving as the Superintendent of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historic Site. 

“Kevin’s exceptional ability to network within communities and dedicate himself to projects will make him a great development director,” said Foundation CEO Carolyn Ward. “With his help, we can expand our efforts to enhance the Parkway in Virginia, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
