Leadership Team

Experience and Heart

Our leadership team is united by an unwavering belief in the limitless potential of the human spirit. 

We’re a passionate group of individuals, committed to helping others become the greater version of themselves. K2 Adventures Foundation is fortunate to rely on the expertise our world-class board of directors brings to the table, including members of Fortune 500 companies, business owners, entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders.

It’s the diversity of that collective acumen that allows us to do things that other organizations can’t; and elevates K2 Adventures Foundation to realize its own possibilities.
