Dillon Mayor Kevin Burns started Monday, June 1, in a new role with Vail Resorts.
The company announced in May that Burns was appointed to the position of senior manager of mountain community affairs based in Breckenridge.
In that job, Burns will conduct community outreach in resort communities in Summit and Eagle counties. Burns will help build on government and community relations with an understanding of approval processes and community needs and desires, build and maintain the company's relationships with key stakeholders and assist with outreach for Epic Promise, the company's charitable giving and environmental program.
Burns will report to Kristin Kenney Williams, Vail Resorts' vice president of mountain community affairs.
Prior to joining the company, Burns was a senior project manager at Summit Information Services where his duties included developing and executing public relations and government affairs initiatives, media outreach, event development and support and campaign planning for clients ranging from local organizations to Fortune 500 companies.
A Summit High School class of 2003 alumnus and longtime resident of the High Country, Burns returned to live and work in the mountains after obtaining a bachelor's degree from Hampshire College in Massachusetts. He enjoys spending his free time hiking and skiing.

"His passion for the communities in the High Country and for the outdoors combined with such strong governmental, business and resident relationships already in place will no doubt create many positive and new opportunities for all of us working together."
