SKDKnickerbocker Managing Director Jennifer Cunningham was listed in the New York Observer’s 2014 “The City State: Albany’s Top 40″

16. Jennifer Cunningham

Partner at SKDKnickerbocker

The founder of SKDKnickerbocker—perhaps the single most powerful consulting firm in New York State—is also the ex-wife of Mr. Schneiderman and close to Mr. Cuomo. The firm will play a key role in shaping the message of the Democratic Party as it looks to grab more power in Albany. While she’s no longer technically a lobbyist, due to conflicts of interest, she still holds serious sway.
