Biographical Info

Bruns worked for Cheyenne LEADS since May 1999 and has served as CEO since 2002.

“Randy has been the face of LEADS for many years and is an institution in Economic Development, so we accept his notification with profound thanks knowing that he has earned a happy retirement after decades of dedicated service to LEADS and the Laramie County region,” said Brian Heithoff, Board Chairman. “We have anticipated his retirement and appreciate his more than six-month notice.  The LEADS Board of Directors spent time last year developing a succession plan that we will now execute.  We are not yet saying goodbye to Randy, but the board is now fully engaged in the process to find our next CEO”.

Heithoff continued, “Our succession plan calls for a five-person search committee that includes the current Chairman, Vice-Chairman and 3 other voting board members. Those members have already been appointed. The first task the committee will undertake will be issuing an RFP for an Executive Search firm.  We anticipate that will be done within three to six weeks.”

Mr. Bruns stated after the Board meeting that, “This has been an extremely rewarding career, but I think it is time to retire.  Cheyenne LEADS is in a very healthy condition with a great professional staff and a board that is prepared for this transition and capable of not missing a beat.  It has been hugely gratifying to be a part of this organization and to see our work benefit this community – it is now time for me to take my leave and take a crack at this thing called retirement.”

It is anticipated that LEADS will conduct a national search for its next CEO with a target of having a new CEO identified and hired within the first quarter of 2020.  The actual announcement of the position along with job description and other specifics will occur subsequent to contracting an executive search firm, per the Board’s succession plan.  The succession plan also calls for a transition period to include both Mr. Bruns and the incoming CEO in order to ease the transition and take advantage of the vast institutional knowledge that Bruns represents.
