NPS Names New Region Director
Masica will be based in Denver and will start in January
A longtime National Park Service administrator is taking the reins of the agency’s Intermountain Region. Sue Masica has been named regional director and will be responsible for the oversight of 91 national parks and 6,000 employees in the Northern Rockies, including Glacier National Park.

Masica will be based in Denver and will start in January. Prior to taking this new position, she was the Alaska regional director since 2008.

“Serving at the Intermountain regional director is a tremendous honor,” she said. “The region is home to spectacular landscapes and compelling stories; places that have been entrusted to the National Park Service for nearly 100 years.”

NPS Director Jonathan Jarvis made the announcement in November and said Masica’s track record of tackling tough issues and finding innovative solutions is how she ended up being picked for the new job.

As regional director in Alaska, Masica oversaw the largest national park and preserve at more than 54.7 million acres and an annual budget of more than $100 million. She has 25 years of government experience and is the recipient of the Presidential Rank Award for leadership accomplishments within the park service.
