Candidates:

Robin Doss - I have over ten years of experience serving on non-profit and for-profit boards and leadership teams, including several years as a corporate strategic planning facilitator. I have served on boards that managed large budgets and accomplished impactful agendas. I'm most proud of the community outreach program I led the development of with the Cooking Matters Colorado board of directors. We created a self-sustaining, volunteer-led program that trained and supported outreach volunteers to serve as organizational ambassadors to dramatically increase exposure and fundraising capacity.

Gloria Crank - I have served on the Hotchkiss and Paonia Chambers of Commerce, as well as the Delta County Tourism Cabinet. In addition, I have participated on the Hotchkiss Business Development Steering Committee, the Cedaredge Economic Development group and the West Elk Scenic Byway working group, however I am not currently committed to any Board positions.

Prior to moving here, I served as President of the Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce for 3 years and on the Crested Butte Town Council for 4+ years. I was also a Founding Member of the Crested Butte Academy in the early 1990’s.

Since college I have built, bought and sold multiple businesses. As a business owner, my experiences include building premium promotions for financial institutions (in the 80’s), real estate sales and vacation rentals (in the 90’s), long-term rental management (in the early 2000’s) and I have owned and operated Over The Hill Media LLC, which is a multi-media publishing company based on Redlands Mesa, since 2010. My experience has taught me to be creative in business development, fair-minded in working with staff,collaborative in solving problems and fiscally responsible. I work well as a team member but I’m confident in taking a leadership role when required.

Greg Stunder - I am an attorney, accountant and former public utility executive. My undergraduate degree is in Accounting and I was a Certified Public Accountant before attending law school. I first worked in public accounting and then later managed the accounting department for a district energy company. After seven years in the accounting field, I attended law school. After graduating, I worked for a civil rights law firm and then the Philadelphia Public Defender’s Office.

In 2001, I began a twenty-year career at Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW), a public utility owned by the City of Philadelphia which distributes natural gas to 524,000 customers. I worked in PGW’s legal department and was later promoted to vice president. While vice president, I led five business units: regulatory/legislative affairs, environmental sustainability, environmental compliance, technical compliance, and corporate preparedness. During my tenure at PGW, I worked extensively with historical and budgeted financial information while representing the Company in complex rate matters before the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. I also participated in the development of PGW’s corporate strategy, mission, vision, core values, annual goals, and annual objectives. Further, I advised PGW’s Board of Directors, CEO, and senior management with respect to rates, regulatory matters, legislative affairs, and environmental sustainability.

Greg Krush - I have been involved in community radio since the 80s, as a listener, supporter, DJ, music reviewer, music library curator and board member. When KCSU, which was a college/community collaboration, became a student-only station in 1993 I was one of a small group that spent 10 years permitting and building community station KRFC in Fort Collins, which went on the air in 2003. I served as treasurer for KRFC for 15 years and president of the board for 2 years. Building a station from scratch gave me many insights to the full breadth of all the different pieces that go into setting up and operating an NCE radio station. When urban growth made farming impossible on the front range, I relocated to Hotchkiss in 2019 with access to a community radio station being no small part of choosing a new area to move my farm. In my spare time I like to spend time river rafting, back-country skiing, catching live music and working on vintage farm equipment.

Brody Wilson - I moved back to Montrose in August from the Boulder area with my family. I began listening to KVNF more (on-line), and read the latest annual report. As I looked through it, I realized how much I’d been missing the community that KVNF serves, and was so pleased to see the station still thriving and playing an ever more important role in our community.

I currently work for IBM as the Global Sustainability Manager for IBM’s real estate group. I manage a team of 28 people responsible for maintaining IBM’s environmental compliance and achieving IBM’s ambitious sustainability and net-zero carbon goals.

I currently serve on the board of directors for the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP), a non-profit group driving policy and programs to improve energy efficiency across CO, NM, AZ, NV, and WY. I’ve been a board member with SWEEP for 3+ years and was most recently a member of the search committee responsible for the selection of our new executive director. SWEEP has an annual budget of approximately $2.5M.

I hope you’ll consider me for a board position and allow me to contribute my business and sustainability expertise, and non-profit board experience to help ensure KVNF’s continued success and improvement.
