Delta Waterfowl Hires Director of Corporate Partnerships and Ad Sales, Restructures Marketing Team

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — Delta Waterfowl has hired Brad Heidel as senior director of corporate partnerships and advertising sales, and has promoted Bryce Seefeldt to assistant director of marketing.

Heidel, 50, will handle corporate partnerships and advertising sales for Delta Waterfowl’s award-winning membership magazine, as well as for the organization’s website, digital and special media projects. In addition, Heidel will work with industry conservation partners to increase the impact of Delta’s innovative programs such as First Hunt, Hen Houses, Predator Management, Working Wetlands and Waterfowl Research.

Seefeldt will lead and support Delta Waterfowl’s marketing and fundraising activities, as well as event package procurement. Seefeldt has been with Delta since 2012.

“Delta’s continued growth and the changing dynamics around our marketing and advertising activities necessitates that we realign and add another professional to our staff,” said Alex Heiser, vice president of communications, marketing and membership. “Brad brings to Delta extensive experience in the outdoors industry, along with a strong sales background and a passion for waterfowl hunting.”

Heidel has worked in the non-profit conservation world throughout his career. He began with the Minnesota Wildlife Heritage Foundation, then became a regional director for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. He was director of corporate relations for Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever for 10 years, and most recently, has served as executive director of the International Hunter Education Association.

“Conservation is my passion,” Heidel said. “Hunters are the greatest conservationists in North America, and I enjoy working with them.”

Heidel grew up in southern Wisconsin, where he began hunting ducks and geese near the state’s famed Horicon Marsh as a youngster.

“As a lifelong waterfowl hunter, who better to work for than The Duck Hunters Organization?” Heidel said. “I want to help put more ducks in the air and more hunters on the water.”

He lives in Madison, Wisconsin, with wife, Karen, and a pair of Labrador retrievers, Oakey and Burger.

Heidel can be reached at or (651) 403-1772.
