The Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition) is pleased to introduce and announce Ms. Nina Kapoor to our members and the RNG industry as the RNG Coalition's Manager of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs in Sacramento, California.
The addition of Ms. Kapoor in July 2017 will further bolster the RNG Coalition's advocacy and education efforts on behalf of the North American RNG industry in California and on the West Coast. "After a highly competitive and deliberate process, we are thrilled to have Nina join our team," commented Johannes Escudero, CEO & Executive Director of the RNG Coalition. "The RNG Coalition will immediately benefit from her extensive lobbying experience, relationships and understanding of the legislative and regulatory processes in California."

At CFA, Ms. Kapoor was responsible for developing and implementing all legislative affairs, including advocacy before the Legislature in California and Congress in Washington, DC. She was instrumental in leading key stakeholder coalitions and coordinating strategic media campaigns for the association.
Ms. Kapoor also previously represented a number of high-profile energy and transportation clients at KP Public Affairs, a well-respected lobbying firm in Sacramento. Before transitioning to the private sector, she worked in the California State Capitol as a Senate Fellow and as legislative staff to prominent members of the State Senate and the Assembly, including the Chair of the Assembly Committee on Utilities and Commerce.
