Maggie Moran will leave Kivvit and is expected to join the cannabis industry early next year.
“It’s been the privilege of my career to help build Kivvit into the best public affairs firm in the country,” Moran said. “The pandemic and the much-needed focus on inequality and injustice in our country have had a profound impact on me.”
Moran has been one of the state’s most influential political insiders for more than 25 years and has established a significant presence in New York and other parts of the country.
“I am excited to announce that the next chapter of my career will be in the cannabis industry to advance racial equality and women’s mental health and wellness. As Maya Angelou said – ‘Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better,” said Moran.
Moran worked for Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, ran Al Gore’s New Jersey operation in 2000, directed Jim McGreevey’s coordinated campaign in 2001, and played a leading role in Frank Lautenberg’s return to the U.S. Senate in 2002. She served as deputy chief of staff to Gov. Jon Corzine and managed Corzine’s 2009 re-election campaign. In 2018, Moran was campaign manager for Cuomo’ 64% re-election victory.
