FARGO – Citing the desire to be closer to his family, a Sanford executive here has resigned his position as executive vice president.
Andrew Richburg, who originally started working with MeritCare and then joined Sanford when they merged in 2009, said he resigned his position on Aug. 17 and is now living in Colorado with his family.
“I was able to come back home and be close to my kids and my parents, and it’s a great situation for me,” Richburg told The Forum.
Richburg said as a part of his separation from the organization, he could not comment further on his resignation.
In a statement to The Forum, Sanford President and CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft said he had asked Richburg to take on a new role in a Marketing Innovations Center a few weeks before his resignation.
“At that time, Andrew expressed his desire to spend more time with his new wife and family in Colorado, and I certainly understand and accept that,” Krabbenhoft said.
Krabbenhoft said they are now conducting a search to fill the vacant position and hope to have someone in place by early 2013.
