Colleen Callahan named DNR director

Tue, February 19, 2019

Colleen Callahan of Kickapoo has been named director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Callahan currently manages her own communications consulting firm after spending more than seven years as state director for USDA Rural Development in Illinois. During her tenure, she oversaw a 20 percent reduction in staffing while still being able to generate a $1 billion increase in the Illinois loan portfolio.

“From Mines and Minerals to Museums and Management of Lands; from Parks to Preservation of History; from Water to Wildlife…the oversight is vast and various. I’m looking forward to connecting with those who use and those who depend on our state’s greatest asset, our natural resources,” Callahan said on a Facebook page.

Callahan was a member of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s transition team.

Callahan also served as the agribusiness director for WMBD in Peoria,for 30 years. A University of Illinois graduate, she was the first female president of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting.
