Executive Director

Pasted Image-0A message from Brad Barth, “As the Executive Director of Forward Devils Lake Corporation I get to build lasting relationships in an area of North Dakota that I have been visiting for 40 plus years. My wife Diane grew up in Munich, a small town north of Devils Lake and I have always enjoyed coming back to this area. In May of 2018, we decided to make the move to Devils Lake. If you are interested in starting a business in our area or relocating an existing business to the area, please give me a call.

We will do our best to put an incentive package together that will make the move worthwhile and you will be able to work, live and play in a region of North Dakota that I have come to enjoy and you will too! The opportunity to live next to a World class fishery like Devils Lake is a fisherman’s dream!  My love affair with the lake started in 2004 when I won the Co-angler portion of the FLW RCL Devils Lake Walleye tournament, I’ve been hooked ever since!”
