Six Rivers National Forest Supervisor Tyrone Kelley is leaving his post to become the Director of Engineering at the Forest Service Pacific Southwest's Regional Office in Vallejo.

Kelley has been the Forest Supervisor of Six Rivers since June 2006.

"The job has been challenging and rewarding," Kelley said in a press release. "I have had the great fortune to work with dedicated employees, communities and tribes as well as local governments. Looking back at the last seven-plus years I have truly enjoyed my tenure as forest supervisor and I will miss all the relationships we have forged. I am looking forward to the new challenges ahead as director of engineering for the region."

The first 20 years of Kelley's career were in various engineering positions across the country, so the new position that he starts mid-April will be a return to his professional roots, according to the release.
