Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards yesterday announced the appointment of Bren Haase as Executive Director of Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA). 

“Bren is unquestionably an individual with a distinguished conservation record, in both his professional body of work and personal passion for coastal protection and conservation in Louisiana,” stated Gov. Edwards. “Bren has my complete confidence, my utmost respect, and my full support.”

In September 2018, Haase was named CPRA Deputy Executive Director and has also served as Division Chief of Planning and Research for CPRA.

In this capacity, his team produced the 2017 update of the Coastal Master Plan, a $50 billion, 50-year plan to protect and restore Louisiana’s coast, unanimously adopted by the Louisiana legislature in June 2017.

“I am honored and humbled to be in a position to make a real difference in the lives of Louisiana’s citizens. I do not take this responsibility lightly and pledge to continue the good work of CPRA to protect our citizens and provide a sustainable coastal Louisiana that supports our economy, culture and bountiful natural resources,” said Haase.

Haase’s appointment was made upon the resignation of former CPRA Executive Director, Michael Ellison.
