Green Spa Network’s (GSN) board of directors has announced Paul Schmidt’s departure as GSN’s executive director, effective June 2. The network is currently in the process of selecting a new executive director. Kate Sornson, membership coordinator, will serve in Schmidt’s place in the interim.

“It has truly been an honor to serve the greater spa and wellness community through my work with GSN,” says Schmidt. “I’ve been humbled by the opportunity to steward GSN’s incredible vision of vital people, vital planet. Thank you for supporting the heart in our spa community and having the courage to stand for a future we can all live with.”

During his three-year tenure, Schimdt grew the network to more than 1,400 members, produced six industry events, and brought the network’s Sustainability Assessment Tool (SAT) to market.
