Bio
Paul Brierley is a graduate of Project CENTRL Class XVI, past-President of the CENTRL Alumni Council, and and on the board where he is nominating chairman and past Curriculum Chairman - spearheading the adjustment to a 1-year curriculum. He is the inaugural executive director of the University of Arizona's Yuma Center of Excellence for Desert Agriculture.

Paul grew up working on his family’s farm, majored in Computer Science and worked in telecommunications research before deciding to move to rural Arizona and get back to his agricultural roots. For twelve years he operated Brierley Custom Hay in Safford. During that time Paul served in leadership of the County Farm Bureau and Republican Party.

Following Project CENTRL, Paul’s desire to impact the critical issues facing agriculture and rural Arizona led to a 10-year career as Director of Organization at the Arizona Farm Bureau. He is a graduate of the Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Academy, and currently serves on the boards of the Greater Yuma Economic Development Corporation and Aerospace Arizona, and is on the executive committee of the Arizona Town Hall, the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce, and the Arizona District Export Council. He also serves on the Food and Agriculture Policy Advisory Committee for the Arizona Department of Agriculture.
