Travis Boeskool

Deputy Director

Travis Boeskool is deputy director for the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE). He oversees the department’s budget as well as internal functions, including Human Resources, Information Technology, and training and outreach.

His work ensures that the agency’s budget effectively advances EGLE’s mission to protect Michigan’s environment and public health, and to help local communities do the same with the hundreds of millions in grant dollars EGLE distributes annually. At the same time, Travis and his team help ensure that the department’s core regulatory programs have the support needed to efficiently and effectively serve the people of Michigan.

Prior to starting with the Department in 2015, Travis worked as a legislative aide in the Michigan House of Representatives and helped create and manage a neighborhood repair program for a local nonprofit organization.

Beginning with the Department as an entry level analyst, Travis moved to the legislative office in 2017. From that vantage point, he has worked closely with virtually every program area in the agency, gaining a broad based and in depth knowledge of the critical functions of the department. As the department’s legislative liaison, Travis has guided several key legislative packages to enactment by the Governor and played a key role in several budget development cycles.

Travis is a Michigan State University graduate and lives in Okemos with his wife and two daughters.
