The Nature Conservancy in Vermont has appointed Eve Frankel as the organization's next state director. She succeeds Heather Furman, who was promoted to lead The Nature Conservancy's Appalachians Program.

Frankel joined TNC Vermont in 2014 as director of strategic communications. Most recently, she has served as the organization's deputy director, leading programs in government relations and policy, community engagement, and communications.

“During her tenure at The Nature Conservancy, Eve has been a leader committed to connecting people, partners and communities to each other and to nature,” said Jed Murdoch, board chair for TNC Vermont. “We are thrilled to have her lead us at this critical time.”

Frankel is a graduate of American University. She started her career in Vermont working for Seven Days, helping to significantly expand the reach of the independent weekly newspaper. She then worked in the renewable energy sector as a marketing strategy leader at Northern Power Systems (now WEG) and Northern Reliability (now KORE Power).
