About The Event
Does your organization have legislative priorities? What’s the best approach to influence change at the policy level with limited tools and resources?
Join the Blue Ridge Chapter of PRSA at our October luncheon for a presentation on advocacy communications by Kyle Kimball, Vice President of Government Affairs for Con Edison in New York City.
He directs the company’s government and community relations activities in New York City, Albany, and Washington, D.C. He manages the company’s relationships with policy makers at all levels of government, guides political and policy issues, and oversees lobbying efforts.
Mr. Kimball joined Con Edison in June 2015. In 2013, Mr. Kimball was appointed president of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and later reappointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio. In that position, he oversaw billions of dollars in capital infrastructure investments and implemented several of the city’s most ambitious real estate development projects. He was key in helping to strengthen the city’s economy by attracting new industries and expanding entrepreneurship opportunities.
Prior to joining NYCEDC, Mr. Kimball worked at Goldman, Sachs & Co. as vice president in the Americas Financing Group, and at J.P. Morgan, also as a vice president, in corporate capital markets.
Mr. Kimball is a 1995 graduate of Harvard. He also received a master’s degree in Public Policy from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in 1998.
