Chief, Web & Digital Strategy
USDA Farm Production and Conservation
Larry Gillick is the chief of web & digital strategy at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Production and Conservation Business Center. It's a new gig, leading teams of web and media specialists across three farmer-facing agencies: Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Risk Management Agency.
You may know him better from a decade at the U.S. Department of the Interior, where he set standards for web and social media and established a common cloud-based website platform that now hosts DOI.gov, BIA.gov, BLM.gov, BOEM.gov, BSEE.gov, FCG.gov, AlaskaCenters.gov and DOIOIG.gov (Interior's Inspector General's office). He advises other agencies on web and social media issues and enjoys long-form problem solving. Why solve for today, when you can solve for forever?
On the side, he helps (in a very minor way) with the organizing of Drupal GovCon.
He has an MA from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication and is ABT on an MFA in Digital Cinema.
