Trailnet Announces New Executive Director, Ralph Pfremmer
Trailnet is happy to announce that its Board of Directors named Ralph Pfremmer as the organization’s new Executive Director. Pfremmer joins Trailnet with an expertise in business development and a passion for health and wellness.
After considering applicants from across the nation, the Board unanimously selected Ralph Pfremmer. Ralph is inspired by Trailnet’s work over the past 25 years and looks forward to furthering the organization’s mission. A personal advocate for health and wellness, Ralph is an avid cyclist and has experienced the life-changing benefits of an active lifestyle firsthand. His proven skills as an innovator and entrepreneur will help expand our reach and impact within our communities.
Prior to Trailnet, Ralph was CEO and founder of Pfoodman Holdings in St. Louis, Missouri. Using active living and sustainability as a platform to build his company, Ralph supported pertinent events throughout the region. He also collaborated with communities and worked towards maintaining healthy, active values.
Ralph succeeds outgoing CEO Ann Rivers Mack, who joined Trailnet in 2000. Ann guided Trailnetʼs strategic shift from trail building to its current focus on healthy, active, and vibrant communities. She had a vision that Trailnet could play a role in creating bikeable and walkable communities. This vision became the building blocks for many successful Trailnet programs. We will honor Ann at Trailnet’s 2nd Annual Fundraising event, Ped-A-Palooza: The Art of Living on Friday, October 17.
We welcome Ralph Pfremmer as a new leader in the non-profit sector and look forward to working with him to enhance existing programs to increase walking, biking, and the use of public transit in the St. Louis region.
