Bob Wells Award
November 18, 2016
At the Park City Council Meeting on November 17, 2016 Mountainlands Community Housing Trust (MCHT) presented the “Robert W. “Bob” Wells Award” to Bruce Crane, a long-time employee of MCHT.
Bruce Crane started working for MCHT as its bookkeeper in 2008. Formerly, he was a long term employee of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association and event official. During his tenure at MCHT, Bruce has handled a growing and complicated accounting system which is vital to the non-profit’s core functions. In presenting the award, Bob Richer, President of MCHT’s Board of Trustees, pointed out Bruce’s mastery of numbers and his extraordinary efforts in helping MCHT accomplish its mission. “Bruce is just a hard working guy who does the job and does it well”, Richer said. “He has been fighting serious medical issues and, despite taking time off for treatments has kept up with his duties and performed above and beyond. He exemplifies the kind of service that Mountainlands tries to provide.”
Before his untimely death in 2015, Bob Wells served as Vice President of Real Estate and Resort Development for Deer Valley, a position he held from the time it was formed. Bob was an original board member of MCHT when it was established in 1993 and served as president and executive committee member for 22 years. The initial award was presented to Bob Wells when MCHT celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013. It is presented for “Exemplary Service in Support of Affordable Housing”. The only other recipient was Marc Estabrook in 2014.
