New York City Economic Development Corporation, President & CEO
Kyle Kimball has served as President of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) under Mayor Bill de Blasio since January 2014. As President, Kimball leads NYCEDC’s continued efforts to position New York City as the global center for innovation and to increase economic empowerment and mobility for all New Yorkers. Including those in tech.
In fact, Kimball has played a key role in shaping the historic Applied Sciences NYC initiative, leading to the creation of four new applied science and engineering campuses, including one being developed by Cornell University and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology on Roosevelt Island, a campus being developed by a consortium led by NYU in Downtown Brooklyn, focusing on the challenges facing cities, a new institute for data sciences at Columbia University, and a program focusing on the intersection of art and technology being developed by Carnegie Mellon University in Brooklyn.
You can thank Kyle Kimball for all of that.
