Governor Nathan Deal appointed Paul Shailendra to a 19-member Board that is responsible for setting rules and regulations for issues ranging from air and water quality to hunting seasons in Georgia, and for providing input on matters such as the state agency’s budget recommendations and legislative initiatives. He will serve on the Board for four years.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources manages more than 400,000 acres of lakes, including Allatoona, Lanier, Oconee, Hartwell, and Sinclair; 63 state parks and historic sites; and all of Georgia’s forest and wild life management areas comprising millions of acres. Georgia has the nation’s largest area of forested land in the U.S. The agency safeguards the vast natural resources of the state and its delicate ecosystem through its own enforcement agency, the Environmental Protection Division (EPD).
Shailendra serves as president of SG Property Services. He graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and is an alumnus of Woodward Academy, where he now sits on their advisory council. He is a past member of the Real Estate Committee for the Woodruff Arts Center, Waterfowl USA, and other outdoor sports organizations. Among other things, he has served on the Board of Directors of the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce.
