Mara Hired as DBA PR Director
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/15/2015

A longtime newspaper editor has accepted a job as the new director of public relations with the Wisconsin-based Dairy Business Association. Jamie Mara joins the organization after working for 22 years in various roles in the news business, most recently as interim executive editor for Post-Crescent Media, based in Appleton.

"I love this state and am extremely proud of its cutting-edge innovation, unparalleled work ethic and fierce commitment to natural resources," Mara said. "The dairy industry embodies all of those things I can't imagine representing something that is more purely Wisconsin."

A native of Prairie du Chien, Mara graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a bachelor's degree in journalism.

DBA Director Tim Trotter said the PR director job is a newly created position. He notes that Mara's non-agricultural background will be an added benefit.

"Jamie's communication expertise will serve us well as will his fresh perspective of the industry," Trotter said. "The dairy industry has a wonderful story to tell and Jamie will lead the charge in helping us tell it."

Mara currently lives in Little Chute with his wife and two teenage sons.
