2021-2022 Board of Directors
Hans Gottschaldt, SNWA/LVVWD/Springs Preserve
Hans Gottschaldt is the Facilities Manager for the Las Vegas Valley Water District, the Southern Nevada Water Authority and the Springs Preserve since May of 2019. As Facilities Manager for these entities, Mr. Gottschaldt is responsible for the oversight of 224 facilities throughout southern Nevada. These include the various office, retail, entertainment, museum and water processing facilities under all three banners.
Hans grew up in a cattle farming family in rural Michigan and then attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in both Mechanical Engineering and Economics. While in Michigan, Hans worked in facilities management for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals for 10 years and for the retail giant Target for 5 years. Hans and his family moved to Las Vegas in 2010 when he became the Facilities Manager for TJ Maxx. In 2014 he was promoted to a regional director role from TJ Maxx to parent company TJX which also operates Marshalls, Home Goods and Sierra Trading Post. This position had responsibilities covering the entire western half of the United States. After a few years of extensive travel and growth in experience, Hans and his family decided that a position settled back in sunny Las Vegas was ideal, resulting in his recent return.
Hans loves spending time with his wife Christen of 17 years, son Dylan (15), daughter Jasmine (13), their yorkie Bandit and rescue dog Monkey. As a family they love to travel. Christen has a career of her own working in interior design and retail design layout. When they are not busy working or traveling they spend a lot of time watching Jasmine’s cheer team, listening to Dylan play the drums or produce his own music and (of course) driving the kids endlessly to their activities.
