HOUSTON, Texas – The American Brahman Breeders Association is pleased to announce that William (Bill) Bunce has been selected by the ABBA Board of Directors to lead the organization as executive director starting Oct. 1.

Bunce is currently executive director of the Nebraska Brand Committee where he is helping the state livestock and law enforcement agency recover from transitional challenges through organizational analysis and transformational leadership. Prior to this temporary position he was the executive director of the New Mexico Livestock Board, a Governor and Board-appointed position.

Bunce also has a variety of executive experience, including association work and ranch and feedlot management.  For example, prior to working on the New Mexico Livestock Board, he was the superintendent of ranch operations for True Companies, LLC, Casper, Wyo., where he managed day-to-day operations for a 350,000-acre agricultural operation comprised of seven ranches, two farms and two feedlots.

Before that, he worked in a unique position as the assistant to the chairman of Christian Broadcasting Network. In that role, he managed multi-million dollar outreach initiatives and developed relationships with donors, as well as overseeing the field ministry team. He also worked for seven years as the director of agribusiness and international marketing for the Wyoming Business Council and for five years, he was the Vice President of the American Polled Hereford Association.
ABBA Recording Secretary and Office Manager Armelinda Ibarra says, “We have been faced with several challenges this year and Bill’s leadership skills and knowledge will certainly help us during this time of transition. He brings vast executive-level experience and I am looking forward to working with someone of his caliber.”
Bunce says it will be an honor to represent ABBA across the globe. “The Brahman breed has such an effect on the global market,” Bunce says. “This breed has all the elements for positive growth — good cattle plus good people plus good intent equals positive results.”
