Leadership Park City Selects Scott van Hartesvelt as New Director

Park City, UT., June 3, 2024 – Park City Municipal announced today that Scott van Hartesvelt will serve as Leadership Park City’s new Director. Scott takes over from longtime Leadership Director and founder Myles Rademan, who is retiring after 30 years. Rademan will step down after the graduation of Class 30 in October. Van Hartesvelt will officially join the organization on July 8, and begin working with Rademan and numerous program stakeholders, supporters, and alumni. Park City Municipal will host a community meet-and-greet event with Van Hartesvelt this summer; details will be posted on the City’s Event Calendar.

A graduate of Leadership Class 29, Van Hartesvelt is an active leader in the Park City community, holding various positions, including Service Chair for the Sunrise Rotary, Board Member for the Hope Alliance, and member of the Park City Chamber Marketing Committee. Most recently, he served as a founding member for Let's Talk, Leadership Park City's Class 29 Project.

“This opportunity is a dream for me. I’m humbled to be following in the footsteps of a giant. Myles built a program that has thrived for 30 years and become part of the fabric of Park City. I look forward to working with the hundreds of alumni, advisors, presenters, and officials who have shaped Leadership into what it is today. Most of all, I can’t wait to welcome each new class of leaders, and to watch them build upon the legacy that was started 30 years ago,” said Van Hartesvelt.

“I've known Scott and his wife Monica for over 20 years and I'm so pleased to see him step forward,” said Rademan. “Scott is a true 'doer' and I'm confident he will take our program to new heights. I will help him in every way possible. While leaving after 30 years is bittersweet, there does come a time when new vitality, fresh ideas and different perspectives are needed. Scott will provide these in spades and I'm confident in his abilities and commitment.”

"I am thrilled to welcome Scott as the new Director. His entrepreneurial spirit, and enthusiasm for people and commitment to help those around him achieve their true potential, make Scott the ideal person to move Leadership onto its next chapter," said City Manager Matt Dias. "I'd also like to express my appreciation to Myles, who showed exceptional community leadership and dedication for over 30 years, and left a lasting impact on Park City and myself personally." 

In addition to his longtime community involvement and volunteerism, Van Hartesvelt is a successful private sector leader in Park City, especially in the marketing and entrepreneurial space, founding his own company in 2002 in the hospitality digital marketing worlds. Scott, his wife Monica, and daughter Laila, reside in Summit County.  

Individuals interested in joining Class 31, the first to be led by Van Hartesvelt, are encouraged to apply when applications open in July. Learn more about Leadership Park City here.
