RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 6) – During a specially called meeting of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission today, Executive Director Richard B. Hamilton tendered his resignation, effective immediately.

The Commission appointed Chief Deputy Director Fred Harris to serve as interim executive director.

The agency staff was notified following adjournment of the meeting this afternoon.

Hamilton, a wildlife biologist and 37-year employee of the Wildlife Resources Commission, had served as executive director of the agency since Charles Fullwood retired in September 2004.

During Hamilton’s tenure, the agency’s work for disabled sportsmen gained national prominence; two modern wildlife education centers were opened to the public; the number of boating access areas across the state increased to 205; and thousands of acres of natural habitat, including game lands, were secured.

Harris has been chief deputy director since October 2004. Previously, he had been chief of the Division of Inland Fisheries. A fisheries biologist, Harris began working for the Commission in 1972.

A subsequent meeting of the Commission will hear a report on the results of a comprehensive review of the agency’s legal specialist position.

Since the agency was created by the General Assembly in 1947, the men and women of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission have been dedicated to the conservation and management of fish and wildlife for the benefit of citizens and sportsmen, and for future generations.
