DENVER – A 21-year veteran of the National Park Service, Charles “Chas” Cartwright, has been named superintendent of Glacier National Park in Montana.

The Park Service intermountain regional director, Mike Snyder, says Cartwright will assume his new position in late May. He will replace Mick Holm, who served as Glacier superintendent for six years before retiring.

Cartwright is now the superintendent of Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.

Cartwright has held a number of managerial positions with the Park Service, including associate to the deputy director in Washington, D.C.

Since 1989, he has held a number of superintendent positions at park units in Colorado, Wyoming, North Dakota and Utah.
