Brandon McBride

USDA Rural Utilities Services

In March of 2015, Brandon McBride was appointed by President Obama to serve as the 19th Administrator of USDA’s Rural Utilities Service. Mr. McBride’s appointment follows his role as a senior staff member for the United States Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. McBride, a lifelong public servant, has dedicated his career to fighting for rural America.

Before working for the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry under the leadership of Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, McBride served for several years as a senior legislative assistant for United States Senator Blanche L. Lincoln. As a member of Senator Lincoln’s staff, McBride handled appropriations and economic development issues. Mr. McBride earned his undergraduate degrees as well as his Master’s degree in Public Administration from Arkansas State University.

USDA’s Rural Utilities Service administers programs that provide infrastructure and/or infrastructure improvements to rural communities. These improvements include water and waste treatment, electric power and telecommunications services. Administrator McBride realizes that these services play a critical role in helping to expand economic opportunities and improve the quality of life for rural Americans.
