The former lieutenant governor and current Connell Foley partner has maintained her profile since an unsuccessful gubernatorial run in 2017. Most recently, Kim Guadagno was named president and chief executive officer of Fulfill, formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean counties. The organization provides 13.2 million meals every year in an effort to alleviate hunger and build food security.
She was also elected as a trustee of NAIOP New Jersey, the commercial real estate development trade association, and was named as one of the top women in business for 2019 by NJBIZ.
Despite her lopsided loss to Gov. Phil Murphy — in which her candidacy was likely tarnished by her association with Chris Christie — no one should discount Guadagno’s chances at future elective office.
