Governor Names New Director of State Lands

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead has appointed Bridget Hill as new Director of the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments. Hill replaces Ryan Lance who is moving to the private sector. The Office supports and makes recommendations to the State Board of Land Commissioners and the State Loan and Investment Board. Wyoming’s top five elected officials sit on those boards.

“The Office of State Lands and Investments has tremendous responsibility to be a steward of Wyoming’s land and our investments. I am confident that Bridget is the right fit for the Office and I thank her for being willing to serve,” Governor Mead said.

Hill currently works in the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office. She was the attorney for the Office of State Lands and Investments for six years. Hill has a bachelor’s and a law degree from the University of Wyoming. She grew up on her family ranch near Saratoga.

“I am excited for this opportunity. As someone who is a graduate of the University of Wyoming and of Wyoming’s K-12 system I am honored to support the Board as it manages our state lands to benefit school children and UW,” Hill said.

Hill will also be a member of the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
