The National Pork Producers Council named David Warner as director of communications for the organization.

“Dave brings strong knowledge of the federal legislative and regulatory processes and business issues, including ones of concern to our industry,” says Kirk Ferrell, NPPC’s vice president of public policy. “He’s a talented writer, and he has much experience with Washington media work.”

Warner was editor of the legislative magazine of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for nearly 12 years and served as senior legislative and political editor for Nation’s Business, the business association’s monthly magazine. He also worked for the U.S. Chamber as director of corporate communications and as senior editor and spokesman for the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform. Most recently, Warner directed media relations for Judicial Watch and served as the government watchdog’s spokesman.
