DAVIDSONVILLE, MD. (August 23, 2023) — Maryland Farm Bureau (MDFB) welcomes Jeb Burchick as its new Director of Communications. Burchick brings extensive experience in communications and media relations to the organization.
A native Marylander, Burchick is an alumnus of Towson University and has served in various roles in government — including Press Secretary for former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and adviser to U.S. Senator Markwayne Mullin.
“Growing up, the highlight of every summer was showing my pigs, sheep and goats at the county fair for my local 4-H Club. Being brought up in that environment, I have always held a deep appreciation for America’s farmers and ranchers,” said Burchick. “I’ve had the privilege of being in the front-seat for some of our state’s most important agricultural policy discussions and I’m honored to join the talented team at the Maryland Farm Bureau in order to advocate on behalf of Maryland’s largest industry.”
As Director of Communications for MDFB, Burchick will lead all aspects of external communication including media relations, digital content creation and strategic messaging. He will also oversee internal communications initiatives.
MDFB Executive Director Parker Welch expressed excitement about bringing Burchick on board: “Jeb has a wealth of experience in government and public service that will be invaluable as we work to strengthen our mission here at MDFB. We are confident that he will be an integral part of helping us reach our goals over the coming years.”
