TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Matt Reardon, a member of the Squaw Valley community for more than 20 years, recently joined Squaw Valley Institute (SVI) as the associate director.

Reardon possesses a diverse resume with experience as a professional skier, touring musician, producer, and event planner. In his role as associate director, Reardon will work closely with SVI Executive Director Renee Koijane to plan SVI’s 2014 programming.

“Squaw Valley is such a unique community with a zeal for active, healthy living, knowledge, world travel and giving back,” said Reardon. “With this in consideration, our goal is to provide riveting content that has a pulse on Squaw Valley and the local surrounding communities.”

For the past two consecutive years, SVI has implemented approximately one lecture or program each month with the intention of “inspiring uncommon conversations.”

Last year’s range of speakers included Cheryl Strayed, author of “Wild,” Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms and most recently Sir Ken Robinson. Reardon and Koijane are in the process of scheduling a wide-range of speakers for 2014; everything from Silicon Valley executives to inspiring athletes, authors, and experts in their field.

“Matt is very well connected in various fields, given his ski and song-writing career and will add further dimension and unique perspective to our programming,” said Koijane. “He will most certainly help build on our steadily increasing momentum.”

Since its inception in 2001, the Squaw Valley Institute works to enhance the quality of life within the unique mountain environment of Squaw Valley, North Lake Tahoe, Truckee, and Incline Village, Nev. Their goal is to bring programming to the Tahoe region that inspires uncommon conversations.
