In late December, Park City Community Foundation welcomed three new members of our board of directors: Whitney Olch Bishop, Kevin Parker, and Beano Solomon. They represent a breadth of professional experience, from real estate to high-tech, and a range of philanthropic experience, from National Parks to LGBTQ issues. What do they have in common? A passion for Park City. Read our Board of Directors biographies here.
Whitney Olch Bishop was born and raised in Park City, Utah and follows the lead of her father, three term mayor Brad Olch, who founded the Community Foundation and served as our founding Board Chair. A partner of Shane Herbert, Whitney works locally as a real estate agent. She is a dedicated volunteer and serves on the board of directors of KPCW and chairs Sotheby’s Cares donor advised fund (held at the Community Foundation). What inspires Whitney’s service.
Kevin Parker moved to Park City, Utah a few years ago with his wife and daughter and is currently serving as the CEO and Board Chair of HireVue Inc., a Salt Lake City based developer of a digital video hiring platform. He has a long career in tech, and currently serves on the boards of Plex Systems, Aptos, Intermedia, and Salient CRGT. Kevin and his wife, Annie, quickly took up the Park City call to serve and have volunteered with Park City Day School and the Community Foundation’s Women’s Giving Fund.
Beano Solomon moved to Park City 15 years ago, and has been an active philanthropist for a lifetime. Her passions include health care, arts and culture, and the LGBTQ community. Her current work is focused on the underserved and minority people in our community; specifically she is focused on inclusion and access in recreation and sport. From funding feasibility studies to championing LGBTQ rights, Beano supports a myriad of causes locally and nationally. Why Beano chooses to live and give in Park City.
