The National Pork Producers Council has named Bryan Humphreys as its new chief executive officer.  Humphreys will replace Neil Dierks who announced his retirement earlier this year. 

Prior to this role, Humphreys worked as senior vice president at the National Pork Board where he helped implement a nationwide producer outreach plan during the pandemic.  He also served as the executive vice president of the Ohio Pork Council, where he helped strengthen the relationship between producers, stakeholders, and community members.

He says he’s looking forward to working alongside producers, stakeholders, state associations, and NPPC to build an even stronger coalition. 

NPPC president Jen Sorenson, an Iowa pork producer, says Humphreys’ strategic thinking and unique experience are the type of leadership the industry needs as it faces challenging times.

Humphreys begins his new role December 21, 2021.
