Jack Broadbent has served as the executive officer/air pollution control officer for the Air District since 2004, with more than 40 years in public service. The Air District is one of the preeminent air quality management agencies in the United States. Under Mr. Broadbent’s leadership, the Air District developed and implemented numerous innovative strategies that have helped to provide a healthy and improved breathing environment for Bay Area residents.

Mr. Broadbent has decades of environmental management experience in both the public and private sector. He joined the Air District after serving as air division director at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX. Before working at the U.S. EPA, Mr. Broadbent served as the deputy executive officer of the South Coast Air Quality Management District, as well as the director of planning and other senior management positions. In the private sector, he served as corporate environmental programs manager for Hughes Aircraft Company.

Alexander “Sandy” Crockett, Air District assistant council, will assume the role of interim executive officer for the next several weeks until the Air District identifies a longer-term interim executive officer and ultimately, a permanent replacement.
