Judd and Diane DeBoer

Judd DeBoer

Following graduation from Willamette University, Judd completed 
Officer Candidate School in Newport, R.I. and served 3 years as a U.S.
 Navy officer. Upon completion of his military service he joined the
 San Francisco office of a large securities firm where he specialized
in portfolio management and investment research. Ten years later he
 founded Envirotherm, Inc. a firm serving the commercial, industrial
 and residential

markets in the Bay Area involving insulation, sound
proofing, and windows.

In 1980, Judd and his wife, Diane, purchased Brown’s Industries, Inc.
 in McCall, Idaho including an interest in Brundage Mountain Ski Area.
 Shortly later they purchased Evan’s Building Center in Eagle, Idaho and
 Payette Lakes Lumber Co. in McCall. In 1981 the family relocated from 
San Rafael to Boise and McCall.

For most of his adult life, Judd has been involved in real estate 
investment and development involving timberlands, ranches and
 commercial developments. Judd has headed the on-going extensive development at Brundage Development Resort for the past 30 plus years, and in 2006 the DeBoer family bought out their partner, the J.R. Simplot Co., becoming sole owners.

In 2000, Judd and Diane and their family conceived and developed
 Salmon Rapids Lodge overlooking the Salmon River in Riggins, Idaho.
 The family continues to operate this 55 room award winning hotel.

Judd and Diane’s vision for the beautiful River Ranch matched that of 
their partner’s, the Hart Family. River Ranch is an upscale
 residential community with 2-1/2 miles of river front, lakes, nature
trails, and preserves, Members’ Ranch House and a fabulous guest 
cabin. They take pride in River Ranch knowing that families will 
enjoy this spectacular property for generations to come. This is
 especially meaningful for Diane since their children now are 4th
 generation McCall.

Judd has served as a director of numerous industry boards and was
 appointed by three Idaho Governors to serve on the Idaho Travel
Council. Judd and Diane were honored to receive the “Outstanding
 Contribution to the Sport of Skiing” award by the Intermountain Ski 
Areas Association and Judd was named the 2018 recipient of the
”Governor’s Lifetime Achievement in Recreation and Tourism” award.
