One of the Northeast’s best-known political and legislative strategists, Evan Stavisky has guided countless high-stakes electoral and government relations campaigns. Described as “politically wired” by the New York Post, he has been repeatedly named as one of the 100 most influential New Yorkers by City & State.
At the Parkside Group, he leads the firm’s government relations efforts in both Albany and New York City. He’s helped major technology companies overcome antiquated regulations, empowered union members to stop Wal-Mart from coming to New York City, enabled public health groups to beat the tobacco industry, and won victories for scores of political candidates on Election Day.
After serving as Chief of Staff to a New York State Assemblyman, Evan began his career in the private sector as the principal strategist for the re-election campaign of Congressman Joseph Crowley (D-New York), who now chairs the House Democratic Caucus. For many years, his insights into government and politics have been routinely featured in many New York media outlets. Beyond New York, he advisers companies and causes throughout the country on how to galvanize stakeholders and sway public opinion on the critical issues of the day.
