COLCHESTER — Robin Turnau, president and chief executive officer of Vermont Public Radio, announced she will step down in March.
Turnau began her career at VPR in 1989 as membership and volunteer coordinator. She went on to serve as capital campaign coordinator, development manager, director of development and vice president for development before being named president and CEO in 2009.
“Reaching this decision has been very difficult for me,” Turnau said. “I care deeply about VPR and it has been an integral part of my life for the past 28 years. … I look forward to taking some time to assess what my next professional endeavor will be.”
Most recently, Turnau oversaw a successful $10 million capital campaign, which included the expansion and renovation VPR’s headquarters in Colchester.
“On behalf of the VPR board of directors, our thanks go out to Robin, who has served as an outstanding leader and inspiration to everyone at VPR,” said Peggy Williams, chairwoman of the board.
