Iowa Pork Welcomes New Communications Director

The Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA) has named Kevin Hall of Ankeny as its communications director. Hall will be responsible for developing and implementing the association’s strategic communications plan, including issues management and public relations projects and campaigns. He’ll also oversee its publications and website.

“Kevin is bringing a great deal of experience working with media to IPPA’s communications programs. This is becoming increasingly critical as we continue to share the story of Iowa’s pig farmers and pork production,” said IPPA president Trish Cook of Winthrop.

Hall comes to IPPA from the Iowa Secretary of State’s office where he served as the communications director for the past eight years. Prior to that he worked as a political reporter and analyst at a variety of news outlets.

“I am thrilled to join the top-notch staff at the Iowa Pork Producers Association. Agriculture is the backbone of Iowa’s economy and we’re the number one pork producing state in the nation,” Hall said. “I look forward to furthering IPPA’s mission of being a leading voice in the pork industry.”
