Lake George Land Conservancy Announces Michael Horn as Executive Director

BOLTON LANDING, NY—The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) announces the hiring of its next Executive Director, Michael (Mike) G. Horn, effective January 1, 2022. Mike Horn is succeeding Jamie Brown who served as LGLC’s Executive Director from 2015 to October of this year.

“Jamie did a fabulous job protecting the land that protects the lake,” said Mike Horn, “while building a very strong financial foundation to support the LGLC’s ongoing efforts. I am honored and excited to be the LGLC’s new executive director and continue this positive momentum.”

For the past four years Mike Horn has been Conservation Director of Saratoga PLAN, an accredited land trust in Saratoga Springs, NY. Prior to pursuing his passion for land conservation, he had a very successful management career in the renewable energy field at GE.

LGLC Board President Michael O’Reilly said, “Mike’s land acquisition experience, passion for conservation, love of the outdoors and business acumen will ensure LGLC’s continued success in protecting the land that protects the lake.”

Mike Horn received a Bachelor of Arts, Economics and Business from Lafayette College and two master’s degrees from the University of Michigan: Master of Science, Natural Resource and Environmental Policy from the School of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Master of Business Administration from the Stephen M. Ross School of Business. He and his family reside in Saratoga Springs.

LGLC Interim Executive Director and Board Vice President of Development Jeff Brozyna said, “This is a critical and exciting period for land protection in the Lake George basin. Mike will be joining us at a time when there are several land protection projects underway, including Clark Hollow Bay, the largest fundraising effort in our organization’s history.”

“I can’t wait to get started,” said Mike Horn. “The winter season is a perfect time to develop a close working relationship with the LGLC’s highly regarded team and to meet some of our donors and supporters.”

Introductions, via Zoom if necessary, will be scheduled for Mike Horn to interact with as many people as possible over the next few months.
