Kyle Davis has joined the Empire Center as its Director of Public Affairs.

In this role, Davis will focus on increasing the Empire Center’s presence in the Capitol, building relationships with state and local elected officials, and strengthening advocacy coalitions.

“It’s never been more important to have sensible policy leading the way to help New Yorkers succeed,” Tim Hoefer, President and CEO of the Empire Center, said. “We’re so excited to have Kyle on the team and working to expand our reach among those who are implementing that policy in the Capitol and throughout New York.”

Before joining the Empire Center, Davis previously worked at the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce as the Government Relations and Public Policy Manager, and worked closely with other business groups across the State to advance a pro-growth legislative agenda. He graduated from Binghamton University with a Masters Degree in Public Administration and holds degrees in both Political Science and Communications from SUNY Cortland.

“I am honored to join the Empire Center team and I look forward to continuing my work as an advocate for small businesses, economic growth, and accountable government,” said Davis. “I’m excited to work with our partners in Albany and across the state to help make New York a better place to live and work.”
