Denver, CO -- Intermountain Regional Director Mike Snyder announced today that NPS Deputy Director Steve Martin has been named superintendent of Grand Canyon National Park effective immediately.

“We are extremely lucky to have Steve take on the challenges that face Grand Canyon National Park,” Snyder said. “As one of the most beautiful and most complex parks in the system it deserves the best management team we can provide, and Steve is one of the best.”

A career veteran with more than 30 years experience as a successful manager, superintendent and park ranger, Martin brings a wealth of experience to the Grand Canyon – the park where he began his career in 1975. He has served as Deputy Director of the NPS since April 2005. Prior to that he was the Regional Director for the Intermountain Region, a post he held for two years. Martin has also served as Superintendent of Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway; Superintendent of Denali National Park and Preserve; and Superintendent of Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Before moving to Alaska, Martin served as Chief of Concessions Management in Yellowstone National Park. He also served as Chief of Resource Management and Visitor Protection at Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota. Prior to the Voyageurs post, Martin held positions at Yellowstone Nation Park as the North District Ranger and Old Faithful District Ranger.

In 1975, Martin earned a B.S. in Natural Resource Management from the University of Arizona. During his NPS career, Steve has received many awards for supervisory and management accomplishments. He recently earned the Meritorious Service Award, the Department of Interior's second highest departmental honor.

Martin’s wife, Dr. Cyd Martin, is also a career employee with the National Park Service. Dr. Martin is the Special Assistant for Intermountain Indian Affairs and American Culture and Superintendent of the Southern Four Corners Group of parks.

The Martin’s have three grown children, Kate, Case and Jesse.
