Evan Stavisky

Founding Partner & President


One of the Northeast’s best-known political and legislative strategists, Evan Stavisky has guided countless high-stakes electoral and government relations campaigns. Described as “politically wired” by the New York Post, he has been repeatedly named as one of the 100 most influential New Yorkers by City & State, which wrote about his “deep understanding of New York government as well as its political stakeholders.”

At The Parkside Group, he oversees the firm’s government relations and public affairs practice areas. He has successfully represented a variety of clients in legislative, procurement, and regulatory matters before state and local governments in New York. His successes for the firm’s clients have included major legislation touching nearly every aspect of state and local policy, the awarding of hundreds of millions in public contracts, and regulatory victories at multiple agencies.

Evan previously led our firm’s award-winning political team, serving as chief strategist on scores of winning campaigns for Congress, the State Legislature, New York City Council, and other offices in New York and New Jersey.

Prior to founding the Parkside Group, he served as Chief of Staff to a Member of the New York State Assembly, as Deputy Director of Volunteer Recruitment and Training for the Democratic National Convention Committee, as Special Projects Director for the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), and as a campaign manager or staffer on numerous political campaigns across New York. For many years, his insights into government and politics have been routinely featured in many New York and national media outlets.
