Skyland Trail, a nonprofit treatment facility for adults with mental illness, has named John C. Gordon as its new board of directors chairman.
Gordon replaces Mark West, who has stepped down from the position.
A native of Atlanta, West is chairman and chief executive officer of First Beacon Investments and also serves on the advisory board of the University of Miami’s School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry.
West, who served as board president before becoming chair, will now serve on the Skyland Trail National Advisory Board where he will continue to assist with planned giving efforts, allowing the nonprofit to maintain strong fiscal health.
Effective Dec. 6, Gordon assumed the chair position of the Skyland Trail board of directors.
Gordon is president of Gordon Document Products, Inc. and managing partner of its sister company, Perfect Circle Renewable Energy. He also serves as president of the Mt. Paran-Northside Neighborhood Association, is the founder and chairman of Friends of English Avenue and just completed his second term as a member of the Ohio Wesleyan University board of trustees.
