Yesterday morning, the City Year New York Board unanimously voted to add Kevin Sheekey to their ranks. Kevin, first became engaged with City Year New York as a graduation speaker and later learned more about the organization as Mayor Bloomberg began his own service push, including Cities of Service. Kevin’s passion for City Year grew as he worked to support City Year Co-Founder Alan Khazei with his campaign for US Senate.
We are excited to welcome Kevin to the board!
Kevin rejoined Bloomberg L.P. in April 2010, as chairman of BGOV, a division that will offer comprehensive information about government and business. In addition, he oversees government relations and communications, based part-time out of the company’s London office, with a focus on expanding Bloomberg’s presence globally.
Before joining Bloomberg LP, Kevin was the Deputy Mayor for Government Affairs. Sheekey oversaw Local, State and Federal government relations. Prior to his appointment, Kevin was Campaign Manager for Bloomberg for Mayor 2005. From 2003 to 2004, Kevin was President of the New York City Host Committee for the 2004 Republican National Convention. Kevin joined City Hall as Senior Advisor to the Mayor after running the Mayor’s 2001 campaign. Previously, he was the chief lobbyist for Bloomberg LP in Washington, DC. Prior to joining Bloomberg, Sheekey was Chief of Staff to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
Kevin and his wife, Robin, and their twins, Dillon and Samantha, live on the Upper West Side.
