Bradley A. Olch

Brad’s vision for the Community Foundation is to ultimately build an endowment to support local nonprofits in perpetuity. He is the former Mayor of Park City, a position he held for 12 years. Some of Brad’s most notable accomplishments as mayor include revitalization of the historic area of Park City, developing and growing the annual budget, as well as the acquisition of open space and water resource development. Additionally, he is responsible for the preservation of the entry corridor into Park City and the historic barn. As Mayor, Brad visited other resort towns in order to learn best practices in resort town management. He learned that Park City was one of the few resorts that did not have a community foundation and that was where the idea was born.
