Little Rock, AR -(Ammoland.com)- Gov. Mike Beebe has named Andrew Parker of Little Rock as the newest commissioner of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

“Andrew is one of our bright, up-and-coming Arkansans who has a lifelong love for the outdoors, is an avid hunter, and a conservationist, as well. He will continue the tradition of insuring the preservation of our natural bounty,” Beebe said.

Parker, 37, grew up in Little Rock and is the Director of Governmental Affairs for the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce. He earned his undergraduate degree from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro and his law degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Beginning in 2007, Parker spent more than three years as Governor Beebe’s liaison to the AGFC as well as to 13 other state agencies, boards and commissions. Later, he served as an attorney for the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission.

Parker, an Eagle Scout, is a hunting and fishing enthusiast, who is especially interested in conservation education and wildlife awareness. He serves on the board of directors for the First Tee of Central Arkansas and is a member of the Little Rock Downtown Rotary Club.

Parker’s term will expire July 1, 2021. He replaces Ty Patterson of Texarkana whose term expired.
