A lifelong resident of Memphis, Tennessee, Jeffrey Howell was hooked as a kid on the south’s mallard hunting opportunities, particularly in rice fields and flooded green timber. After attending the University of Memphis, he was employed for more than a decade as a securities investment professional.

His love of duck hunting and career experience soon caught the eye of two members of Delta’s board of directors. “They knew I was a long-time member of Delta Waterfowl and steered me toward working for the organization,” Howell said. “Joining the Delta team was an easy decision for me, because I’m passionate about its cause and know that we are laser-focused on what matters for waterfowl. I’m incredibly grateful and honored to talk ducks and hunting with incredible men and women who help steward Delta’s mission and vision.”

Howell joined Delta in 2015 as a development director for the Mid-South, and in 2017 was appointed Vice President of Development.

“I want to see Delta grow substantially over the next decade,” he said. “So much can happen when all of us who are interested in conservation can band together so Delta can produce more ducks and secure the future of waterfowl hunting.”

When Howell isn’t hunting or fishing with friends and family, he enjoys spending time snow skiing in Colorado, time at Pickwick Lake in Tennessee and Greers Ferry Lake in Arkansas. He lives in Memphis with his wife Kirsten, son Grant and daughter Averie.
