EASTHAM –Shawn Mulligan has been named the acting superintendent of the Cape Cod National Seashore by the National Park Service.

Mulligan began his new role on September 17th.

He previously served as a special attorney by the Department of Justice and as a NPS representative assisting the Cambodian Government and the Maddox Jolie Pitt Organization in conservation and managerial efforts.

“I’m excited to be here, I’ve got an excellent management team and I’m interested professionally in the variety and the diversity of the issues facing the Seashore, so I’m very pleased to be here,” said Mulligan.

Mulligan added that he will be looking at a variety of issues at the Seashore.

“There’s always the ‘how do you do more with less’ in this era of fiscal austerity, and that poses some challenges to the park that I’ll be dealing with park staff on,” said Mulligan.

Previous Acting Superintendent Kathy Tevyaw has returned to her duties as deputy superintendent.

She had served in the position for four months.

Former acting deputy superintendent Leslie Reynolds returned to her chief ranger duties.

Former Seashore Superintendent George Price retired in May.

The selection process for the next superintendent is underway and is being managed by NPS’ Northeast Regional Office.
