Longtime Georgia Farm Bureau legislative staff member Jeffrey Harvey is now serving the organization as its chief administrative officer. GFB President Tom McCall announced the GFB Board of Directors were appointing Harvey to his new role on Dec. 7.
Harvey succeeds Jon Huffmaster, who retired Jan. 28. Harvey previously led GFB’s legislative efforts as its public policy director since January 2017.
“Georgia Farm Bureau members and the agriculture community have benefited greatly from Jeffrey’s leadership at the state and national levels,” McCall said. “He has worked tirelessly to build relationships with state and federal policy makers since joining the Farm Bureau family in 2001.”
Harvey began his GFB career as a legislative specialist and then served as assistant director and director of the organization’s former legislative department.
A native of Wilcox County, Harvey graduated with a general finance degree from Georgia Southern University and later received his MBA in business management from Georgia Southwestern State University.
Harvey and his wife, Tiffany, live in Macon with their son, Hudson.
