Meet Our Current President

Christopher Aaby

A passion for the environment and a passion for people is what Christopher Aaby is all about. Originally from Norway but having grown up in Colorado, Chris often says he is a native Coloradan with a Norwegian passport. As Executive Director of Catamount Institute, Chris works hard every day so the education staff at the Institute have the resources they need to work with over 8,000 youth each year. Additionally, Chris serves on the board of the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education, Peak Alliance for a Sustainable Future, and Advisory Board for the UCCS School of Public Affairs. Chris was named a 2017 Colorado Springs Business Journal Rising Star, received the Colorado Springs Independent Inclusion Award, and was the Colorado Nonprofit Association's 2019 Emerging Leader of the Year. Chris is dedicated to inspiring fundraisers to continue their work changing the world.
