Preserve > Jorge Silva-Banuelos has been working in D.C. the past 10 years

By The Staff

The Valles Caldera Trust announced the appointment of Jorge Silva-Bañuelos to the position of Executive Director Wednesday. Silva-Bañuelos was selected from a competitive field of 24 applicants to fill the position vacated when Dennis Trujillo retired in January.
“Jorge has extensive experience in natural resource policy, management and leadership of government agencies,” said Kent Salazar, Chairman of the Valles Caldera Trust Board of Trustees. ”His experience working with a broad citizen constituency on public lands issues will also be a great asset to the Trust.”
A native New Mexican, Silva-Bañuelos has lived and worked in Washington, D.C. for the last 10 years. For eight of those years he worked for Senator Jeff Bingaman in his personal office and later as a professional staff member on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee where he handled New Mexico public land, natural resource and conservation policy.
During his time with Bingaman, Silva-Bañuelos laid the foundation for the designation of both the Río Grande del Norte and Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monuments. He also oversaw policy matters related to the Valles Caldera, and worked to secure funding for the Preserve.
