US - The National Pork Producers Council has hired Chris Wall as assistant vice president for government relations in its Washington, D.C., public-policy office. Mr Wall began his duties on Thursday, 1 April.

“Chris has great leadership skills and an extensive background in agriculture,” said Audrey Adamson, vice president of domestic policy issues. “He will be a valuable asset to pork producers in fighting for reasonable legislation and regulations.”

Mr Wall most recently was director of economic development in the office of Senator Richard Burr, R-N.C., working on agricultural issues, including food-safety legislation and the 2008 Farm Bill. Previously, he was a senior legislative assistant for Representative Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., dealing with agricultural matters.
