Governor nominates Dr. Todd G. Geiler to Arizona Game and Fish Commission

Posted January 23, 2020


PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Thursday announced the nomination of Dr. Todd G. Geiler to the Arizona Game and Fish Commission.

Geiler, whose family has lived in Yavapai County since 1946, maintains a solo optometric practice that his grandfather began in 1946 in Prescott. A lifelong outdoorsman, Geiler has volunteered his time to get young people more involved in outdoor activities. He spearheaded a partnership with the City of Prescott and the Arizona Game and Fish Department to provide the youth of greater Prescott, Prescott Valley and Chino Valley with a Kids Free Fishing Day, a day that encourages children to spend time outdoors fishing and learning about conservation.

Geiler also is a member of the Safari Club International, Arizona Cattle Grower’s Association, Arizona Mule Deer Foundation, Prescott Sportsmen’s Club, Kiwanis Club and more.

“Dr. Geiler’s extensive outdoor involvement and community leadership will serve the Arizona Game and Fish Commission well,” Ducey said.  “I am pleased to nominate him and look forward to his contributions on the commission.”

Geiler attended Prescott High School before receiving an associates degree from Glendale Community College. Between 1984 and 1987, he attended Northern Arizona University for pre-doctoral studies with an emphasis on physics and finance. He later earned a bachelor of visual science and doctorate of optometry from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon.

His nomination is pending confirmation by the Arizona Senate.
