Michael Barrett was appointed executive director of the Adirondack Mountain Club in late September 2019, taking over for Neil Woodworth, who spent three decades leading the conservation and recreation group. Barrett is a Putnam County native who served as a foreign language interrogator for the U.S. Army and has worked in state government in New York and Missouri.
