Am neither qualified nor do I want the stress of the actual job, can I apply for just the fun parts? :)

Seriously though... it’s a shame how things have played out for SRC... tragic situation :-/ I certainly hope you guys find the right fit. Strasburg is a very special place, I hope the next General Manager understands what makes Strasburg special.

I believe the strength of the Strasburg team will prevent the hiring (or retention at worst) of a candidate who isn't as committed as they are.

Nothing worthwhile is ever easy.

It will be an interesting challenge to parachute into an established, well-managed, and highly regarded organization like SRR and drive revenue and profit growth. It will take a creative thinker with deft people skills.

Hope you get a promising slate of candidates and that the implementation of your succession plan goes well.
