Tom Twyford

Tom Twyford, treasurer, Sustainable PBC, is a conservationist who hails from Ohio and spent his youth fishing and boating on Lake Erie. An avid saltwater angler, he has lived in south Florida for over 30 years. After graduating from West Virginia’s Marshall University with a degree in Parks and Conservation, Twyford began working for the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America at their Florida High Adventure Sea Base in the Florida Keys.

Twenty-five years ago he moved up the coast to join the historic West Palm Beach Fishing Club where he is now President. Twyford is also vice-chairman of the Palm Beach County Artificial Reef and Estuarine Enhancement Committee and, a board member of Fish Florida, a non-profit organization funded through Florida’s sailfish specialty license plate.  Fish Florida supports youth fishing programs and conservation efforts throughout the state.

Twyford joined the Board of Sustainable PBC to “help guide policy makers and developers on the importance of putting conservation front and center when doing planning. If we don’t conserve, we will deplete the reasons that draw residents and tourists here.”
