Commissioner Appoints New Executive Director of the Board of Game


July 12, 2005

Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) Commissioner McKie Campbell today announced the appointment of Kristy Tibbles as the Executive Director for the Alaska Board of Game.  The position became available earlier this month after the resignation of Executive Director Landa Baily.

"Through her educational background and legislative experience, Kristy has gained an extensive knowledge of fish and game issues," said Commissioner Campbell.  "This knowledge, combined with her strong communication and organizational skills, makes Kristy well-suited for this position.  I am delighted that Kristy is joining the department and am confident that she will serve the board, department, and administration well."

As Executive Director, Tibbles will administer the process for the seven-member Board of Game.  The Board is responsible for conservation and utilization of Alaska's game resources.  The Executive Director works with active and committed Board members, and a public that has strongly-held and divergent views on the issues that the Board considers.  Tibbles will begin work at ADF&G on July 18, 2005. 

For the last four years, Tibbles has been working as a Legislative Assistant in the Office of Senate President Ben Stevens, where she served as a budget subcommittee aide, assisted in the passage of legislation, and coordinated constituent relations.  Prior to that, Tibbles served as a Legislative Assistant to former Senator Drue Pearce.  Tibbles received her B.A. in Biology in December 2000 from the University of Alaska (Anchorage).  She is a native of Colorado, and has lived in Alaska for 13 years.
