RWU School of Law Alum Named RNC Executive Director

Exciting news from RWU School of Law:

Roger Williams University School of law alumnus Kenneth K. McKay IV ’96 has been selected as the new executive director of the Republican National Committee, RNC Chairman Michael Steele announced on Thursday.

“I am excited to have such an outstanding leader become part of our team,” Steele said. “Ken’s background and expertise will help revitalize the RNC and elect more Republicans.”

McKay brings extensive campaign-leadership experience to the job. He successfully managed Rhode Island Governor Donald L. Carcieri’s gubernatorial win in 2002, as well as his re-election in 2006. He went on to serve as Carcieri’s chief of staff from 2002 to 2006, before becoming a partner in the Providence office of the international law firm Brown Rudnick LLP. McKay is also a veteran of the U.S. Army Infantry.

“I attribute a large part of my successful career path to RWU Law,” said McKay. “I received a first-class education and a strong sense of community that has remained with me. My time at RWU helped shape the way I view the legal profession, public service and matters of public interest.”

“Ken’s commitment to public service is a trademark of a Roger Williams lawyer,” added RWU Law Dean David A. Logan. “We are confident that his intelligence, training and interpersonal skills will serve him well as he moves from the state to the national stage.”
