Muddy Sneakers’ Board of Directors has named David Rahahę•tih Webb as the organization’s next executive director. Webb’s first day is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 31.

Webb comes to Muddy Sneakers as an accomplished nonprofit executive with 26 years of experience as a leader in environmental education.

“My career has been dedicated to environmental education, science education, and conservation,” said Webb. “Environmental education is closest to my heart — getting children outdoors and building personal connections with the natural world. This role encompases so much of my background and my own ethos.”

Muddy Sneakers’ Executive Director Search Committee, a team of board and staff members guided by transition consultants, selected Webb after a comprehensive search spanning several months. The committee touted Webb’s accomplishments in organizational leadership, strategic planning, project management, fiscal responsibility, fundraising, and general operations, as well as his empathetic and inspirational leadership style.

“I chose Muddy Sneakers for my next role because the organization's mission and work so closely aligns with my own values and passion," he said. "Muddy Sneakers has an excellent team and dedicated board in place, and is poised to enter an exciting new phase. The impact that Muddy Sneakers is making across North Carolina is vital to the future of our environment and quality of life, and there is so much potential to grow, internally and externally.”

Muddy Sneakers is excited to welcome Webb’s expertise and leadership to the team.
