The Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers announced that Kimberly Renspie will serve as the organization’s first Director of Strategic Initiatives.

“During her first three years with FCCC, Kimberly’s keen understanding of the legislative processes and the complexities of Florida’s judicial system has elevated our legislative and government relations initiatives,” Hart said“As the Director of Strategic Initiatives, her experience — combined with her ability to tackle tough issues, build consensus, and influence change — will undoubtedly help Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers advance its strategic goals.”

FCCC COO and CFO Brian Machek added, “The establishment of this new role reflects Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers’ commitment to carrying out its priorities. The association recently adopted its five-year strategic plan, and Kimberly’s involvement in its priorities, which span multiple departments, will bring a more deliberate approach to how they’re prioritized and executed. I look forward to working with Kimberly in this capacity, as she narrows and strengthens our focus.”

Before the title bump, Renspie served as the Deputy Director of Advocacy and Strategic Partnerships within the FCCC Office of Government Relations. She previously worked as a Deputy Legislative Affairs Director at the Department of Financial Services, a Cabinet & Legislative Affairs Analyst at the Department of Financial Services, and as a Legislative Analyst in the House Majority Office.
