The North Carolina Pork Council board of directors has announced Roy Lee Lindsey of Oklahoma is the next chief executive officer of the NC Pork Council. Lindsey has headed the Oklahoma Pork Council for more than 20 years. He will join the NC Pork staff in January 2021.

"The search committee had many excellent candidates," says NCPC Board President Jim Lynch. "But Roy Lee's leadership experience in the industry made him an obvious choice and we are thrilled he will be coming to North Carolina. We know the industry will face many challenges in the coming years and I think he will provide excellent leadership."

Lindsey grew up in western Oklahoma on the family farm raising wheat, cattle and alfalfa. He also worked at his family's farm equipment dealership.

He attended Oklahoma State University where he earned his undergraduate degree in agricultural communications and a master's in agricultural education. Lindsey worked as a 4-H youth educator before joining the Oklahoma Pork Council in 1998 as executive director.
