Former Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter has launched 40 North Advocacy, LLC with his former aides Michael Berman and Kevin Kinross.

The PA Shop is targeting corporate and nonprofit clients dealing with policy issues at the state and local levels.

Nutter served as mayor of the City of Brotherly Love from 2008-2016. Kinross ran his 2011 campaign, while Berman worked with then-councilman Nutter on the push to make the city smoke-free.

The trio worked on Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign in which Nutter was national political chair.

Based in Philadelphia, 40 North Advocacy debuts with Bloomberg Philanthropies’ What Works Cities, Protect Our Care and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids as charter clients.
