Kerry Gibson to Join DNR as Deputy Director

Salt Lake City (June 4, 2018) – Executive Director Mike Styler announced today that current Weber County Commissioner Kerry Gibson has accepted a deputy director position at DNR.The Department’s other deputy director remains Darin Bird, who was appointed in 2005.

“I’ve known Kerry since his time as a state legislator and I have always known him to be a respectful, fair and honest man. I believe in Kerry,” said Styler. “I have reached out to him directly and have once again invited him to join DNR as one of our two deputy directors. I’m thrilled he has accepted this opportunity and look forward to him joining DNR this week.”

Gibson is a fierce advocate for natural resources. His background as a farmer, state legislator and most recently county commissioner make him a valuable asset to the state and DNR.
