The North Pacific Research Board Welcomes Incoming Executive Director Denby Lloyd

The North Pacific Research Board is pleased to announce that Denby Lloyd will be joining the NPRB staff as executive director in late-October. Mr. Lloyd brings to NPRB nearly 40 years of experience in research and management of Alaska’s natural marine resources. Since his retirement from the State of Alaska in 2010, he has served as a fisheries consultant to the City of Kodiak and the Kodiak Island Borough and as a science adviser to the Aleutian King Crab Research Foundation. Prior to that, Mr. Lloyd worked for various state, local, and federal agencies, and culminated his career at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game with a four-year tenure as commissioner.

NPRB is very fortunate to find a new leader with Mr. Lloyd’s skills and experience. Few people have Mr. Lloyd’s knowledge of the marine resources of Alaska, the breadth of marine research taking place, or the information needed to ensure sustainable management. He also brings decades of demonstrated leadership in working with agency staff and the variety of interests involved in the use and management of Alaska's natural resources.
