Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Secretary John A. Hughes announced today the appointments of Patrick J. Emory as director of the Division of Fish and Wildlife and Robert Baldwin as director of the Division of Soil and Water Conservation.

Emory, 44, has served in several capacities at DNREC. Since April 1995, he has been an environmental program manager in the Division of Soil and Water Conservation. He has also served as an environmental scientist with the Division of Water Resources and environmental protection officer with the Division of Air and Waste Management.

He received a Bachelor of Science degree with concentrations in geography and geology from Salisbury State University and is pursuing a Master's degree in Public Administration from Wilmington College. He is also a graduate of the Delaware State Police Academy and a graduate of the Governor's Management Fellows Program.

"Pat's background, both on and off the job suits him well for this position, said Secretary Hughes. "He will bring a fresh approach and high people skills to this difficult position."

Baldwin, 44, has been acting director of the Division of Soil and Water Conservation since October 2002, and environmental program administrator with the Conservation District Operations Section. Prior to being named acting director, he served as an environmental program administrator with Soil and Water Conservation since 1989. He is vice president of the National Association of State Conservation Agencies.

He has a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture from West Virginia University and a Master's degree in Business Administration from the University of Delaware.

"Robert has a firm grasp of the skills necessary to run the Division of Soil and Water Conservation," said Hughes. "He's approachable, hard working and knowledgeable."
