A lifelong visitor of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Wake Hamilton has countless memories of the Shenandoah region from attending the University of Virginia, and more recently spending his free time in Cashiers, NC. His passion for the Foundation’s goals, particularly of historical preservation, and his appreciation for the Parkway as a driver of local business and cultural opportunities led him to join our board in 2020. A current Associate focused on US Real Estate at The Carlyle Group, he brings with him knowledge of business development, financial forecasting, risk assessment, and project management.
