NYFB Leadership Announces Fox as New CEO

by Steve Ammerman

NYFB Director of Communication


New York Farm Bureau’s Board of Directors has selected Deanna Fox as the next NYFB CEO to lead the organization. Her first day is May 6.

Deanna comes to New York Farm Bureau as a partner at PC Public Affairs in Latham, NY and 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, shedeanna_fox.jpg grew up on a dairy farm in Chenango County and knows agriculture well and the issues our 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.

We will have much more on Fox and her outlook for NYFB in future editions of Grassroots.
