NPB Hires First Chief Sustainability Officer

The National Pork Board has hired James “Jamie” Burr as its first Chief Sustainability Officer. Burr brings over 20 years of experience to help the pork industry meet sustainability goals in his new role.

“Jamie’s input has been invaluable to several key producer-funded initiatives for over a decade,” says Bill Even, National Pork Board CEO. “He’s served on and chaired several Pork Board environmental and sustainability committees and task forces, so his leadership has already helped shape the industry’s sustainability vision.”

Even also says establishing a CSO position and adding Burr to the team continues to demonstrate the industry’s strong commitment to advancing pork sustainability. Burr comes to the NPB from Tyson Foods, where he recently served as director of environmental compliance and was the environmental lead for all of Tyson’s live-animal production businesses.

Burr earned a Master’s Degree in Soil Science and a Bachelor of Science in Agronomy from Missouri State University.
