Kenneth Esser, who served in the administrations of three New Jersey governors, has been promoted to senior vice president and chief of staff for corporate services, governance and government relations at Hackensack Meridian Health.

“This promotion is well-deserved. Kenny has proven himself to be an outstanding leader,” said Hackensack Meridian Health CEO Robert Garrett “We are fortunate to have him as part of the network’s leadership team and look forward to continuing our journey to transform health care in New Jersey and beyond.”

In a press release, Esser was credited with playing a key role in securing funding for the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University.  He also helped launch the Take Vape Away campaign.

He will now play a major role over all of Hackensack Meridian Health’s internal and external communications strategies.

Esser joined the administration of Gov. James E. McGreevey in 2004 as a government relations aide at the Department of Community affairs.  He was a senior policy advisor for economic growth at the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission under Gov. Dick Codey, and the chief energy advisor to Gov. Jon Corzine.  Esser spent four years as business development manager at PSE&G before joining the Bergen County-based hospital in September.
