West Cary Group hires former ChamberRVA CEO as senior policy adviser
Kim Scheeler retired from the chamber in December 2019.
Richmond-based strategic communications firm West Cary Group has hired former ChamberRVA CEO Kim Scheeler as its senior policy adviser, the company announced Wednesday.
Scheeler, who retired from the chamber in December 2019, will split his time between Richmond and Port Charlotte, Florida, for his new position. He worked for ChamberRVA from 2008, and before that served as president and CEO of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce.
“The initiatives with the greatest impact sit at the intersection of government, the private sector and philanthropy, and if those parties don’t effectively engage the communities they serve, then great projects can die a quick death,” Moses Foster, president and CEO of West Cary Group, said in a statement. “I’ve worked with Kim for more than 12 years, and no one understands this better than he does. My hope is that, together, we can help get more projects that benefit all Virginians over the finish line.”
Foster founded West Cary Group in 2007. Its public-sector clients include the Henrico Economic Development Authority, Richmond International Airport, PlanRVA, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission, the Richmond Department of Public Utilities and Alexandria Renew Enterprises.
