RBC I Bruce Sillitoe arrived in Craig last week to begin his new position as the field manager for the Little Snake Field Office.
As the Little Snake field manager, Sillitoe will oversee the management of 1.3 million acres of BLM-administered public lands and an additional 1.1 million acres of subsurface mineral estate in Moffat, Routt, and Rio Blanco counties. He will manage a staff of 30 employees.
“Bruce will be a huge asset to northwest Colorado because he has a wealth of natural resource management experience from a county and federal perspective,” said BLM Northwest District Manager Joe Meyer.
Sillitoe comes to Craig from Salt Lake City, where he was the assistant field office manager over renewable resources in the BLM Salt Lake City Field Office. He has 15 years of experience working as an environmental planner for Clark County, Nevada.
He worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service for nearly five years as well as seasonally for Utah State Lands and the Fort Keogh Livestock and Range Research Laboratory in Montana.
Sillitoe is a native of Henderson, Nevada.
