LITTLE ROCK — Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders today announced that Brandon Adams will serve as the newest member of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Brandon’s seven-year term will last until July 1, 2030.

“Bryan (Sanders) and I have made no secret that promoting our state’s outdoor economy is one of the top priorities we have. We know that it’s one of the greatest assets that our state has,” Gov. Sanders said. “Brandon Adams, our newest commissioner, is somebody that I am very excited to announce today will be taking that position. He loves his family, he cares about our state, and he loves the outdoors – and he loves the idea of making sure that every Arkansan has access to the great resources we have right in our backyard.”

Adams spoke briefly about his enthusiasm toward the appointment. 

“I am deeply honored to have been appointed by Gov. Sanders to this important position on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission,” Adams said. “I was born and raised and have spent my entire life hunting and fishing in what I consider the most beautiful and diverse state in America. I believe that the AGFC has played a crucial role in making and keeping it that way. I look forward to doing my part to help continue this mission.”

Adams is the president and CEO of Reliance Health Care Inc., a nursing home company founded in 1998. He also is a partner at Heartland Auto Group and Heartland Pharmacies. Adams is the chairman of the board at Banded Brands/Avery Outdoors, a nationally recognized hunting apparel and accessory company, and co-owner of Prairie Wings Duck Club in Altheimer, Arkansas. He is a Conway native and lives in Fayetteville with his wife, Brandi.
