BLUE HILL — The Blue Hill Co-op has hired a development and relocation manager to coordinate fundraising and other aspects of the co-op’s move to South Street.

The manager, Tom Reeve, has spent the last two and a half years as the development director at the Mount Desert Island YMCA in Bar Harbor.

He previously lived in Indiana, working as a project manager for the state of Indiana, a restoration ecologist for a small consulting firm and as an executive director of a small nonprofit.

“Tom brings some great project management and fundraising experience to the co-op,” Aaron Dority, vice president of the co-op and chairman of the Relocation Committee stated in a press release issued Monday.

“Our board is excited to add him to the team and start the next phase of our relocation project.”

“I am thrilled to help grow this amazing organization,” Reeve said. “Organizations like the co-op are vital to small communities like Blue Hill. It is a great opportunity to be able to work with the board and members to make this vision become reality.”

The Blue Hill Co-op is community of member/owners guided by the belief in the importance of healthful, honest food options.

Through cooperative principles the co-op supports the greater Blue Hill economy by sourcing goods locally and by providing education on food, environmental and social issues.
