Linke to take over as Hydro Research Foundation executive director

Deborah Linke

The Hydro Research Foundation's Board of Directors has selected Deborah Linke as its new executive director.

The change will transition Linke from her current role as program director for the foundation's Hydro Fellowship program, which she has headed for the past three years.

"The foundation is moving into an exciting time for its future growth and change," Linke says. "I am delighted to be part of that change."

Linke is taking over for Linda Church Ciocci, who served as HRF's executive director for nearly two decades.

"Over a span of 18 years, Linda has successfully guided the HRF and managed the growth of the foundation," says Randy Stearnes, HRF board president. "Her efforts have shaped the outstanding achievements of the HRF."

Linke will continue Church Ciocci's work from a new office in Colorado, which HRF says will allow it to concentrate its efforts on expanding programs.

"Her management skills and passion for hydro align well with the foundation's principal objectives of facilitating research and promoting educational opportunities that communicate the value of hydropower," Stearnes says.

HRF has also announced that Brenna Vaughn will be the new program director for the Hydro Fellowship program.
