Fish and Wildlife Service adds deputy director

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke appointed Greg Sheehan as deputy director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke appointed Greg Sheehan as deputy director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Sheehan previously was director of the Utah Division of Wildlife Service and the Interior Department said he has more than 25 years of experience with the state of Utah in wildlife and natural resource management.

“We are grateful to have Greg Sheehan join our team and help lead USFWS as we advance a pro-conservation and more collaborative agenda at the department,” Zinke said in a statement. “His experience and proven record in wildlife service, as well as his organizational management skills, will be an invaluable asset to the service and the department.”

Before he worked for Utah, Sheehan worked with the Air Force as a civilian. His focus was on correcting inefficiencies in cost and pricing between the Air Force and major Defense Department contractors.

Sheehan is a lifelong hunter, angler and aspiring wildlife photographer. He will start at the Fish and Wildlife Service this month and will be acting director of the agency until President Donald Trump nominates a director who is confirmed by the Senate.

“I am thrilled to have an opportunity to work with Secretary Zinke and the great team at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,” Sheehan said. “I look forward to helping promote the fish and wildlife resources in America through collaborative partnerships with states, local government, the sportsmen’s community and others.”
