North Dakota Game and Fish Director Terry Steinwand has appointed 15-year department employee Jeb Williams as chief of wildlife. Williams succeeds Randy Kreil, who announced his retirement in August.
“Jeb has a proven track record in all of his capacities with the department,” Steinwand said. “This, along with his communication skills, was a large part in his selection.”
Williams has been the assistant wildlife chief since 2011. He has also held biologist and wildlife resource management supervisor positions.
A native of Beach in Golden Valley County, he has a bachelor’s degree in biology and resource management from Dickinson State University.
