WASHINGTON – The U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed President Trump’s nomination for the Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, Robert Wallace. Wallace received broad bipartisan support for his nomination throughout the confirmation process.

Wallace, a native of Wyoming, brings 45 years of experience to the position, having served as head of congressional affairs for the National Park Service, worked on Capitol Hill, and led government affairs operations in the private sector.

“Rob Wallace brings extensive public and private sector experience to his new role as Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, and I look forward to working with him in his new capacity to advance the President’s agenda,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt.

A native of Evanston, Wyoming and graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Wallace’s government experience includes time as both a seasonal ranger and, later in his career, assistant director of Legislative and Congressional Affairs for the National Park Service.  He has been chief of staff to U.S. Sen. Wallop (WY-R), Republican staff director of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, and chief of staff to Wyoming Governor Jim Geringer. In the private sector, he led U.S. government relations for GE Energy where he co-chaired the Government Relations Operating Council. The council coordinated the company’s energy advocacy throughout the world.
