Bob Wagner, Co-Director

For most of his career Bob has worked on social and environmental causes. He spent 12 years overseeing house-building programs in Africa with Habitat for Humanity and another nine years working for the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina to strengthen nonprofits in our region. At the Community Foundation Bob spearheaded WNC’s Mountain Landscapes Initiative, bringing land use planning and decision-making tools to government officials, developers and private citizens. He also served on the board of the Asheville Design Center as well as chair of WNC Nonprofit Pathways.

He holds a business degree from Wake Forest University, is a graduate of Leadership Asheville and attended the Center for Creative Leadership. Bob grew up in Maryland near the Chesapeake Bay, where he enjoyed fishing and crabbing and developed a deep appreciation for the environment. His interests include spending time with his wife (and two sons when they are in town), hiking in our beautiful mountains, spirituality, most sports, videography, and travel.

We value mountain communities that are vibrant, livable, and respectful of their connection to and dependence on the region’s natural environment.
