A Veteran Team-Builder And Emerging Community Leader
Erik Sevigny has been an Angel Fire Resort homeowner and Member since 2009. He’s a career military officer who brings over two decades of diverse professional experience to the table. He also describes himself as someone who’s “not afraid to get my hands dirty doing the hard work that needs to be done.”
Read on to learn more about Erik, his qualifications, and how he plans on being of service to his fellow Members.
What made you decide to run for a seat on the AAFPO Board of Directors?
I’d like to reestablish a healthier working relationship between the Board and the Resort that benefits the Membership. I’d love to see an environment where the Board and the Resort work in harmony to benefit all parties.
What, in your opinion, is the most pressing issue facing the Member community?
The need for a more cordial and less expensive solution for resolving the differences between the Board and the Resort. In direct correlation to this issue, I believe communication is the second most pressing issue for Members. From the outside looking in, it appears that effective communication between the Board and the Resort has broken down. I wish that the Board had sought greater Membership input before filing the lawsuit against the Resort.
What’s your vision for AAFPO?
I envision an Association that works closely with its Membership and the Resort to create the best experience for its Members, with the best amenities in the Southern Rockies, for the best value.
What special skills or experiences would you bring to the AAFPO Board?
I have over 20 years of professional leadership experience as a U.S. Army Infantry officer and 10 years of budget and contract oversight experience. I also have extensive crisis management experience, which has allowed me to hone my analytical, verbal, and listening skills. Finally, I already understand what board service means, as I was recently appointed to the Board for the Albuquerque Chapter of the Military Officers’ Association of America. Next year I will be assuming the role of Chapter Membership Chair for this organization.
What makes Angel Fire Resort feel most like home to you?
I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire. Angel Fire has many similarities that bring back so many fond memories of my childhood. Angel Fire is an amazing place, and I have seen tremendous improvements here since we purchased our property. I would like to see those improvements continue for years to come.
