Randy Hatzenbuhler

Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, President and Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Executive Director for Development

Randy Hatzenbuhler, a Mandan native, has worked for the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation for over 30 years and has helped raise over $60 million in gifts to further develop Medora, the gateway community to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

He began working alongside the TR Medora Foundation’s first president, Rod Tjaden, and the organization’s founder, Harold Schafer. Hatzenbuhler has served as its President since 1997. During his time in Medora, he has been instrumental in leading the area’s growth in tourism, fundraising, and physical development.

Hatzenbuhler was recently announced as the Executive Director for Development for the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library, in addition to his role as President of the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, where he will join newly appointed CEO, Ed O’Keefe. The integration of these organizations will leverage the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation’s five decades of experience in the Badlands, while connecting people to his Presidential Library, both in Medora – a place TR loved.
