Statement from Yellowstone National Park

The National Park Foundation’s president and CEO Neil Mulholland announced today that he is stepping down. Yellowstone National Park Superintendent Dan Wenk has agreed to serve as interim president and CEO of the National Park Foundation while the Foundation’s board of directors conducts a national search for a successor.

Mr. Wenk will begin his interim position on Monday, November 3 and will return to work at Yellowstone once a permanent successor is named. During Mr. Wenk’s absence from Yellowstone, Deputy Superintendent Steve Iobst will be acting superintendent.

The National Park Foundation is the official charity of America’s national parks and is based in Washington, D.C. Outgoing Foundation President Neil Mulholland served as president and CEO for five years. Under his leadership, the Foundation successfully raised over $40 million to build the Flight 93 National Memorial, and this year the Foundation will conclude its most successful fundraising year in its history.
