The National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) has selected Mark Kimberling as its Manager of Government Relations. With the addition of Kimberling, the Association looks to reach its top goal of improving the reach and effectiveness of its advocacy efforts.
“If we were designing the right person for this job from scratch, the result would look very much like Mark,” said NASAO President Greg Principato. “I am very much looking forward to working with Mark to continue our effort to raise NASAO’s profile on Capitol Hill, provide high quality and actionable information for our members, and to engage our state members, and Friends of NASAO in our advocacy work.”
Kimberling, a Commercial rated pilot, has worked on Capitol Hill, and spent more than five years with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) as National Director of State Government Affairs, during which he won AOPA’s Presidents Award.
Kimberling started on July 6th.
