WASHINGTON, DC — After an extensive, nationwide search, the National Senior Citizens Law Center Board of Directors has named current Deputy Director Kevin Prindiville as its new Executive Director effective July 1. He will replace Paul Nathanson, who has served in that position since 2008.
“Our search led us to consider several outstanding candidates. However, Kevin’s vision for NSCLC’s future, his leadership skills and his proven ability to connect with NSCLC’s supporters made him the ideal candidate for the job,” said Board Chair Robert Johnson.
Prindiville has gained recent national prominence in promoting consumer protection of people who have both Medicare and Medicaid (dual eligibles). As many states seek to move millions of low-income elderly and people with disabilities into managed care plans, he leads both national and California-focused projects that are having a significant impact on the design of demonstration projects affecting millions of people.
The author of several substantive reports and briefs, he frequently testifies before legislators, presents at national conferences and works closely with both federal and state regulatory agencies to accomplish NSCLC’s advocacy goals. He is often quoted in both national and California media.
Prindiville, who started as a Staff Attorney at NSCLC’s Oakland office in 2006, currently leads the organization’s Health Team and has been its Deputy Director since 2011. As Deputy Director, Prindiville has assisted in the oversight of development, communications, administration, and finance.
He has also been lead counsel in a national class action ensuring dual eligibles get full access to benefits under Medicare Part D and co-counsel in various Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security class actions.
“Kevin Prindiville is a proven leader in the struggle to address poverty among older adults,” added Johnson who is also Of Counsel at Munger, Tolles & Olson in Los Angeles. “His deep knowledge of the legal issues most important to poor seniors and his strategic vision and skills will ensure that the organization can continue its important mission protecting the rights of low-income older adults. The NSCLC Board of Directors looks forward to supporting Kevin as he charts a new path for NSCLC’s future.”
Prior to joining NSCLC, Prindiville worked as a staff attorney at the Pennsylvania Health Law Project in Philadelphia. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School and the University of California, San Diego. Prindiville is admitted to the California Bar.
