Kimberly A. Hulsey, a Director in our In-House Counsel Practice, advises in-house legal departments on strategic hiring decisions and places the best fit legal, government affairs and compliance talent in corporations, government agencies, not-for-profits and higher education institutions throughout the D.C. metro area. Kimberly is also a member of Major, Lindsey & Africa’s Diversity, Inclusion + Belonging Leadership Council and the In-House Recruiting Diversity Committee.
As a native of the Washington, D.C., region and a late-in-life runner, Kimberly can often be found running — audio books in ear — along area trails, training for an upcoming 10-miler, half-marathon or marathon. Cupcakes, fine dining and leading her local Jack and Jill Chapter are Kimberly’s personal passions, as is her tween, basketball obsessed daughter.
Before joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Kimberly served as vice president, legal and government affairs for Scripps Networks, Interactive. In this role, she led the government and industry advocacy initiatives that advanced Scripps’ business objectives. She also provided legal support to Scripps’ real estate, construction, human resources, bankruptcy, research and corporate social responsibility functions.
Immediately before Scripps, Kimberly spent several years with TV One, starting as vice president, legal affairs and then advanced to the position of senior vice president, legal affairs and HR strategy. In addition to leading the HR department, she was responsible for all legal matters associated with distribution of the TV One network. Later, Kimberly transitioned to the business leadership role of senior vice president, distribution and strategy where she developed marketing and distribution strategies to achieve performance objectives and optimize partner relationships.
Prior to joining TV One, Kimberly was associate general counsel for affiliate and government relations at BET, supporting carriage negotiations with cable and satellite companies and maintaining primary responsibility for regulatory issues affecting the company. She began her career as an associate with Fleischman & Walsh, LLP and an attorney-advisor with the FCC’s Mass Media Bureau. Immediately after law school, Kimberly was a law clerk to Judge Michael Rankin of the D.C. Superior Court.
