Oakmont’s general manager resigns
Kevin Hubred, Oakmont’s general manager since 2018, is resigning effective Aug. 5 to relocate to Sacramento.
Hubred said he is leaving Oakmont for personal reasons unrelated to any controversies in Oakmont. He said he wants to return with his wife, Susan, to the Sacramento area, where he lived and worked for 32 years before coming to Santa Rosa.
“I will really miss the staff members,” Hubred said. “OVA is very lucky to have so many talented people working in the best interest of the community every day. This is an exceptional, dedicated team. They keep the operations running smoothly working with our members and our many volunteer committees.” He also had high praise for the OVA board of directors, calling the board “the best I have ever worked with.”
Hubred said his goal for Oakmont was to gain Firewise USA community status, which was granted by the national organization in October, 2018. “We have spent more than half a million dollars collectively on safety and defensible space initiatives,” he said. “We continue to track that work and urge everyone who lives here to become knowledgeable in creating defensible space and hardening homes.”
Before joining Oakmont, Hubred said he gained fire abatement and vegetation management knowledge at Auburn Lake Trails, a FireWise USA community he managed. He also managed Riverlake Community Association.
Steve Spanier, OVA president, said Hubred has made numerous contributions to Oakmont during “trying times.”
“We will miss his professionalism, his calm demeanor and steadying influence, and his fervent commitment to the concept of servant leadership,” he said.
