AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The former president and CEO of Trout Unlimited has been named the executive director of one of Maine’s top wildlife conservation organizations.
Charles Gauvin replaces Ted Koffman, who retired earlier this year and is now running for the state Senate.
Gauvin served at the helm of the national river and fish conservation organization, Trout Unlimited, between 1991 and 2010. During that time, Maine Audubon says that he boosted Trout Unlimited’s annual revenue from $2.5 million to $28 million and added dozens of staff members.
He also held the chief development officer position at the Washington D.C.-based Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
