BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Camber Outdoors announced Monday that Tiffany Smith will be the new CEO. Smith recently served as Camber's chief development officer.

With more than 15 years of strategic leadership experience in nonprofit and for-profit areas, she led Camber's partnership, marketing, and fundraising teams and increased the company's sustainability efforts in her previous role.

Camber Outdoors is a nonprofit organization with the mission of supporting workplace inclusion, equity, and diversity for outdoor-recreation focused organizations. Smith succeeds co-CEOs Renita Smith and Emily Newman.

"Tiffany joined the organization with a proven track record of impact and continued the trend of success within the first year at Camber," said Reggie Miller, co-president of Camber's board of directors. "She established a partner experience, which has increased partner engagement by 60%, increased partner retention rate, diversified funding streams, recruited and managed leaders as well as enhanced communication strategies. Tiffany was poised for this promotion with her undeniable impact within our organization and within the Outdoor Recreation Economy. Tiffany is a seasoned leader whose vision, energy, and sense of purpose will drive systemic change in building more inclusive, diverse and equitable workplaces."

Tiffany Smith will execute on Camber's strategic plan that includes five key priorities in the next three to five years: amplifying the narrative of Camber's mission; catering to its partners with new programming and initiatives; assessing the group's core needs through Camber Survey System; creating a more diverse pipeline of professional talent in the outdoor-recreation industries; and continuing to find ways to strengthen Camber as an organization.

"I am optimistic as I take on this role as CEO to continue the trend of impact by transforming the landscape of workplaces and impacting the lives of those who identify as women and underrepresented groups," Smith said. "Camber's work remains emergent, responsive, and flexible to the changing context of the growing and evolving workplaces in the outdoor economy. We will continue to work toward meaningful impact in our critical mission of building inclusive, equitable, and ultimately diverse workplaces in the outdoor industry."
