A large crowd attended a “good luck” party for Kevin Holsapple on Thursday, to celebrate his retirement as executive director of the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation. Holsapple held the position for 15 years.
“It’s been fun to do,” Holsapple said. “We have an excellent staff and I’ve worked with a lot of great people over the years.”
Holsapple has already started enjoying more free time by traveling to Peru with his wife, Kris Raber, and backpacking at Valle Vidal with his sons.
“I haven’t been able to make time to do that forever,” Holsapple said.
Holsapple is also looking forward to freelancing and expanding his horizons.
“I am looking forward to not being so bound by the local geography,” Holsapple said.
Holsapple plans to stay involved locally, especially with projects he has been involved with.
“If the community shows an interest in making projects like the creative district happen, I’ll be there helping.”
