The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) has appointed two new members to its Board of Directors.
Dirk Hyde and Libby Yranski will work closely with the RBFF leadership to meet its mission, including its goal to increase participation from the current level of 49 million anglers to 60 million in 60 months.
Hyde comes to the RBFF Board after nearly 30 years within the Brunswick family of companies. He most recently added the role of President of Crestliner’s Aluminum Fishing Group and for the past nine years has served as President of Lund Boats.
Representing the States Organization for Boating Access (SOBA), Yranski brings strong knowledge of the boating policy space to the Board. She currently serves as SOBA’s Executive Director and the ANMMA’s Director of State Government Relations, working to create more and better opportunities for boaters throughout the United States.
“As we push closer to the 60 million angler mark, we will need cooperation from every facet of the fishing and boating industry. I’m pleased to see that’s exactly what we’re getting with our newest Board members,” said RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson. “With the addition of Dirk and Libby, we now have representation on the boat manufacturer and policy sides of the equation and I look forward to their contributions to the RBFF Board.”
