New Louisiana Regional Director Comes Home to Cameron Parish

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — Delta Waterfowl is pleased to announce the appointment of Southwest Louisiana native Jeremy Adkins as its new regional director for the state. Adkins takes over the role from longtime Louisiana regional director Bryan Leach, following his promotion to regional manager for event fundraising.

Adkins was born and raised in Cameron Parish. His family owned marshland there, where he developed his passion for ducks, chasing them and managing habitat. Adkins is a fifth-generation graduate of Louisiana State University, where he also completed a master’s degree as a student of Delta Waterfowl president and chief scientist Dr. Frank Rohwer.

He previously worked in New Orleans for oilfield service provider Danos, where he served as a senior project manager and was promoted to general manager of land operations after nine years. In 2018, Adkins relocated to Midland, Texas, to become the vice president of Grand Isle Shipyards.

Adkins’ commitment to Delta Waterfowl runs deep. As an influential volunteer, he helped to start the Gulf Coast Chapter in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and the Fleur de Lis Chapter in New Orleans.

Leach is thrilled to have Adkins join the Delta team, and at the prospects of impactful growth in the region.

“We are very fortunate to bring Jeremy (Adkins) back to Louisiana and back to Delta,” Leach said. “His family will reside in Southwest Louisiana, where his passion for ducks began. We look forward to making a wonderful impact together for The Duck Hunters Organization.”
