GREAT FALLS - The President and CEO of Special Olympics Montana, Bob Norbie, will be changing roles after 25 years and will become the director of the Special Olympics Montana “Reveal the Champion in All of Us” endowment campaign.
Norbie said in a press release, “This change has been a critical part of our strategic thinking the past several years. Given my tenure and intent to retire in the not-too-distant future, it is wise for the Board of Directors to support this change of responsibilities so I can focus on securing the future of our organization.”
The SOMT Board of Directors will begin the search for a new CEO and plan to have a new hire in place by mid-2018.
Special Olympics Montana Board Chairman John Parkes said, “We need to wisely utilize Bob’s tenure with our organization. Over the years, he’s led the transformation of our mission and elevated it to significantly new heights. Given his credibility and the enduring relationships he’s established statewide, this is the investment we must make with Bob’s time and talent while we have the opportunity.”
The press release notes that Special Olympics Montana serves nearly 3,000 Montana athletes with intellectual disabilities and 120 teams annually through sports, health, education, and community-building initiatives.
