Sonora Area Foundation To Restructure: Bergstrom Dismissed As Executive Director

Sonora, CA — The Sonora Area Foundation has announced the departure of Executive Director Mark Bergstrom as part of an organizational restructuring plan.

SAF President Jim Johnson has released a statement reading, "Mark’s efforts while he was with the Foundation were influential in fundraising, but at this time it was felt that a change in the organizational structure of the Foundation would benefit the Foundation’s efforts to advance the vision of the late Irving J. Symons for the betterment of the greater Sonora area."

The Sonora native took over for outgoing Executive Director Mick Grimes on May 1st. At the time the Foundation stated that he was selected from a pool of 44 candidates from across the nation.

We contacted Bergstrom this afternoon, and he chose not to comment on the matter.
