Kevin Shivers is executive director of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Pennsylvania's most influential organization representing small- and independent businesses.
Since joining NFIB in 2001, Kevin and his team have worked collaboratively with four governors and the General Assembly to enact a host of new laws that have saved small employers thousands of dollars annually and protected their ability to run and grow their businesses.
Kevin is regularly quoted in Pennsylvania's major newspapers and business journals because of his straight-forward, no-nonsense style and his ability to easily explain complex issues. He also is a frequent guest on a variety of statewide television and radio programs, including Lincoln Radio Journal’s Capitol Watch segment which is broadcast semi-monthly on over 90 radio stations across the state.
Before joining NFIB, Kevin was deputy press secretary for Pennsylvania governors Tom Ridge and Mark Schweiker. Before joining the Ridge administration, Kevin worked in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
