Oklahoma Farm Bureau Promotes Mielke and Nemecek to Senior Directors of Communications

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 15:22:37 CDT

Oklahoma Farm Bureau Promotes Mielke and Nemecek to Senior Directors of Communications Oklahoma Farm Bureau recently named Dustin Mielke and Hannah Nemecek as senior directors of communications.

“As the voice of Oklahoma agriculture, communicating with members and the public is critical to the success of Farm Bureau,” said Monica Wilke, OKFB executive director. “Dustin and Hannah have done a tremendous job, and will continue to do so as they work to enhance our various communications efforts.”

Mielke was promoted to senior director of corporate communications. In his new role, Mielke will drive communications to OKFB members regarding organizational services and programs. He also will continue in his visual communications role. A member of the OKFB communications staff since 2006, Mielke most recently served as director of corporate communications.

“Sharing agriculture’s story has been a longtime passion of mine, and I’m excited to continue that work for our Farm Bureau members in a new capacity,” Mielke said. “We have so many great things happening in Oklahoma agriculture and Oklahoma Farm Bureau, and it is vitally important we share these stories to ensure our industry thrives into the future.”

Mielke, who holds a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications from Oklahoma State University, has more than 11 years of experience with the organization’s communications department. He grew up in the small agricultural community of Conrad, Montana, and resides in Edmond, Oklahoma, with his wife Li.

Nemecek was named senior director of policy communications. In the new position, she will lead Farm Bureau messaging on state and national policy issues as she also maintains and improves the visuals of OKFB’s legislative efforts.

“Now more than ever, elected officials and the public must understand the needs of agriculture and rural Oklahoma,” Nemecek said. “I’m eager to continue providing a voice for farmers and ranchers at the state Capitol, in Washington, D.C., and beyond.”

Nemecek previously served as director of public policy communications after beginning her career with OKFB in 2015 as a communications specialist. She also earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications at OSU. Nemecek grew up on a small swine operation in Skiatook, Oklahoma, and now resides in Oklahoma City.
