Nick Ellis has informed the Carolina Horse Park Board of Directors that he is resigning as executive director of the Carolina Horse Park Foundation, as of Nov.15, 2013, to return to his passion of riding and training horses, according to a news release.

Ellis has spent six years as board chairman and, most recently, as executive director for CHP.

Under Ellis’ direction, CHP significantly diversified and increased its portfolio of sports and community activities.

“We owe great thanks to Nick for his years of service to the park and his vision in expanding the calendar,” said Larry Smith, chairman of the board. “We wish him the best in the future and look forward to seeing him competing at the park.”

In the interim, Jane Murray will assist the board in the recruitment of a new executive director and oversight of the early 2014 calendar of events.
