Andy Hayes, who recently retired as President of the Northern Lakes Economic Alliance, joined Camp Daggett as Executive Director on June 1, 2021. Andy served for 10 years with scout councils in West Virginia, Florida and Alabama. He moved back to Petoskey in 1987 to become the executive director for the Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce, and eventually became the president of the Northern Lakes Economic Alliance, a position he held for 15 years before retiring. He attributes his love for camp from his years with the scout councils.
Becca Nelson, Board President, Camp Daggett, states, “While his expertise in business structuring, fundraising and economic development are areas of technical expertise that Andy will bring to this role, his passion and experiences with scouting make him a really good fit for Camp.” Andy stated, “I have officially ‘flunked’ retirement. I am both excited and humbled to join such a great organization with a super staff and board of directors. I have truly loved everything I’ve done throughout my career, and I’m equally excited about this move too.”
