Johnny Bradberry has extensive experience at the state level and private sector (both Domestic and International).

In this role, Bradberry also provided significant individual leadership on several critical issues, including agency right sizing and work process improvements, development of the state’s coastal master plan and corresponding implementation plans for coastal protection and restoration. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from LeTourneau College and LSU.

Bradberry was appointed to serve as Governor John Bel Edwards’ Executive Assistant for Coastal Activities and as the Chairman of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority in January of 2016.
