Tony Blair, CWB:
Tony is a Principal and owner of Blair Wildlife Consulting, LLC and registered as a Certified Wildlife Biologist® by The Wildlife Society. An avid outdoorsman, having grown up in a small Texas town farming, ranching, hunting and fishing, Tony learned the values of land stewardship from a young age. That passion and interest led him to gain a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Texas State University – San Marcos in 2007. After college he gained a decade of experience in wetland delineation, endangered species surveying and GIS mapping while spending the bulk of his time in land, wildlife and ranch management, and nuisance wildlife conflict resolution. Through these opportunities Tony has gained extensive experience in business administration, large team management and leadership, and business development.
In his former senior leadership positions, Tony played an integral role in the development and success of two multimillion dollar companies. This was done through a refined focus on hiring, training, leading and mentoring the best fit members of his teams and a continuous interest in improving efficiency of process to lend better results. In that vein, he was able to develop and demonstrate the utility of a remediation process that was the first of its kind in the wildlife mitigation industry. This process led to the establishment and implementation of an additional service sector that not only increased employee and client safety, but also increased client satisfaction.
At BWC, Tony brings expertise in business development and administration, urban wildlife mitigation as well as land & wildlife project management and service implementation.
