The Sierra Fund Announces BIG Transition: Izzy Martin Retires as CEO

The Sierra Fund’s long-time CEO, Elizabeth “Izzy” Martin, has announced her intention to retire from the station she has held for nearly 20 years.

“TSF is emerging from the COVID pandemic strong and ready to serve as the state’s leading advocate to restore resilience to the ecosystems and communities of the Sierra Nevada for the next 20 years,” says Martin. “Our programs and financial prospects are solid – with things going so well, now is the perfect time to make the transition to a new leader.”

Under Martin’s leadership as CEO, TSF has implemented pilot projects on the ground to identify best management practices and protocols to rebuild the Sierra and lead successful legislative campaigns to bring new resources to the Sierra Nevada.

A search for our new leader began earlier this year and we are pleased to announce that the position has been filled. We will be excited to reveal our new leader in early November. Stay tuned!

TSF is an equal opportunity employer committed to equity, inclusiveness and diversity in all of our activities.
