Delta Waterfowl promotes Beckler to chief financial officer

Tim Beckler will lead the strategic financial management of The Duck Hunters Organization

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — The former head of Delta Waterfowl’s Finance Department has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer.

Tim Beckler, a certified public accountant who first brought his trade finance experience to Delta in 2003, was named chief financial officer earlier this month. He previously worked at Delta as vice president of finance.

“Tim has very effectively led all aspects of our Finance Department, including being involved in preparing the budget and taking on a managerial role to keep us all financially on track, while also managing various aspects associated with growth and substantial organizational maturation,” said Dr. Scott Petrie, CEO of Delta. “Tim’s role has continually expanded and evolved. He is now a strategic partner for me and for our leadership team. Tim has been very effective in directing our financial investment planning, and he continues to provide thoughtful vision and financial leadership as we prepare for and activate full-scale Million Duck campaign operations.”

Beckler’s promotion strategically coincides with Delta’s launch of the Million Duck Campaign, a landmark initiative to produce 1 million ducks a year and secure the future of waterfowl hunting through duck production, conservation of habitat, research and education, and the recruitment, retention and defense of hunters.

“It has been an honor to have served the Delta Waterfowl Foundation in participating in the organization’s exponential growth over the past 19 years,” said Beckler. “I look forward to continuing to lead financials for Delta in its next phase of significant growth of the Million Duck campaign.”

When not working with spreadsheets and business finance, Beckler enjoys trying to catch the elusive walleye in North Dakota. He also enjoys kayaking, building campfires, biking, hiking, playing golf, and attending concerts.
