New York Farm Bureau Selects New CEO


New York Farm Bureau’s Board of Directors has chosen Deanna Fox as its new CEO. New York Farm Bureau is the State’s largest agricultural lobbying/trade organization. Its members and the public know the organization as “The Voice of New York Agriculture.”

Fox comes to New York Farm Bureau from PC Public Affairs in Latham, NY where she was a partner. She has nearly two decades of experience working in leadership roles with different organizations, including having extensive experience in communications, government relations, and media relations. Deanna also worked as a journalist focusing on food and agriculture. While she lives in the Capital Region, she grew up on her family’s farms in Chenango and Madison Counties and understands agriculture and the issues NYFB members are facing.

“It is my deep honor to be chosen as the next CEO of New York Farm Bureau. Farm Bureau has provided more than a century of support and leadership for New York’s farmers and has guided agriculture through numerous challenging times to create new eras of prosperity. I hope my tenure as CEO reflects that legacy and builds on the hard work of New York Farm Bureau members, staff, board directors, stakeholders, and previous executives. I am eager to incorporate my family history in farming into my leadership approach and use the tenacity, dedication, and drive I learned as a farm kid in my role as CEO,” said Fox.

Fox met with New York State Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball this week and has plans to tour the state to meet with county Farm Bureau leaders, members, and agricultural partners.

“The State Board is pleased to have Deanna on board as our new CEO, and we look forward to our members getting to know her better. She brings new energy and ideas that will continue to strengthen the organization’s reach and create new opportunities for farmers across the state,” said David Fisher, New York Farm Bureau President.
