New York City mayor Eric Adams is in the market for a press secretary after upping Fabien Levy to the first-ever deputy mayor of communications position.
In his new role, Levy is to coordinate communications across the city’s agencies to ensure that a unified message goes out to New Yorkers.
Levy has served as press secretary for Adams’ 19 months in office. Reporting to Levy will be City Hall’s communications director, press secretary, director of the office of community and ethnic media, research director, and senior advisor for creative communications.
Prior to joining Team Adams, Levy worked on governor Kathy Hochul’s successful run for Congress and then served as her communications director.
Levy joined the Obama administration as press secretary at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, where he was part of the rapid response team during the Affordable Care Act’s first open enrollment period.
He also served as press secretary and senior advisor to New York Attorney General Letitia James.
