The Southern Ute Indian Tribal Council announced today that the Southern Ute Growth Fund’s Executive Director, Raymond A. Baker, has resigned for health reasons.

“My entire time with the Growth Fund, on and off the work site, has been nothing less than outstanding and I will be leaving the Growth Fund with a heavy heart. The Growth Fund is filled with true professionals that are willing to go that extra mile and believe in getting the job done right, the first time,” indicated Baker.

Baker, who is a Southern Ute Tribal Member, submitted his resignation to the Southern Ute Tribal Council after many in-depth medical evaluations conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Multiple service-connected issues were identified as directly related to his 30 years of honorable service in the Navy as a saturation diver.

Chairman Frost stated, “The Southern Ute Indian Tribe truly appreciates the dedicated work ethic Mr. Baker demonstrated while serving as the Executive Director of the Southern Ute Growth Fund. We wish him all the best while navigating through this personal time in his life.”

Baker’s last day will be Friday, September 1st, 2017
