Governor Schwarzenegger Appoints Alan Lloyd Secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced the appointment of Alan C. Lloyd as secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA).

"Alan shares my commitment to continuing California's tradition of strong environmental protection and balancing the preservation of our environment and resource conservation with economic growth and fiscal responsibility," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "Alan's track record of success and balanced approach as chairman of the Air Resources Board and expertise in environmental policy and management makes him a tremendous asset to the people of California."

Lloyd has over 25 years of experience with environmental issues. He has served as chairman of the California Air Resources Board since 1999. Prior to joining the Board, Lloyd was executive director of the Energy and Environmental Center at the Desert Research Institute. From 1988 to 1995, he served as chief scientist for the South Coast Air Quality Management District. Prior to that, Lloyd served in many positions at Environmental Research and Technology, Inc. (now ENSR), starting as senior staff scientist in 1976, moving to manager of the Environmental Modeling Section of the Environmental Analysis Division, then becoming deputy manager of the Environmental Analysis Division before serving his last four years with the company as manager of the Air Quality Division for the Western region. Lloyd's professional experience also includes six years as assistant director and assistant research chemist for the Department of Chemistry at the Statewide Air Pollution Research Center.

Lloyd is an active member of the environmental community through his service as a member of the Air and Waste Management Association and on numerous boards and committees, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Air Act Advisory Committee, the U.S. Department of Energy Hydrogen Technical Advisory Panel and the National Research Council Transportation Research Boards' Committee on Alternative Transportation. He has also authored numerous publications and papers, as well as given countless presentations within the field to national and international audiences. In 2002, he was the recipient of the Canadian Hydrogen Association Medal of Recognition for Outstanding Services for the Advancement of Hydrogen Energy and Hydrogen Economy in North America.

"I am thrilled Governor Schwarzenegger has given me the opportunity to lead California's efforts to protect our environment," said Lloyd. "I look forward to working with the Governor to continue to build upon the environmental accomplishments of his administration."

Lloyd, 62, of Sacramento, earned a Ph.D in gas kinetics and a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth. This position requires Senate confirmation and the compensation is $131,412. Lloyd is a Democrat.

The mission of CalEPA is to restore, protect and enhance the environment and to ensure public health, environmental quality and economic vitality. Created in 1991, six boards, departments and offices fall under the umbrella of the CalEPA to create a cabinet level voice for the protection of human health and the environment and to assure the coordinated deployment of State resources.
