Charles Burton will take over the helm for the Lake Lanier Islands Development Authority as executive director, replacing Bill Donohue, who is retiring June 30.
Burton most recently has worked as general manager of Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa as well as regional manager for Amicalola and Unicoi State Park lodges.
Gov. Brian Kemp recommended Burton to replace Donohue in mid-May and the LLIDA Board accepted the recommendation. Burton will begin the job on June 15.
