Speaker: Kevin Schwalb is TRSA’s vice president of government relations. Kevin previously served as a presidential appointee of President George W. Bush to the Department of Labor. While at the Department of Labor (DOL), he worked directly for Labor Secretary Elaine Chow, representing DOL to such stakeholders as congressional leaders, business leaders such as CEOs of Fortune 50 companies as well as small businesses owners. Among the issues Kevin was involved in were Free Trade Agreements, Family and Medical Leave Act revisions and labor organization policy.Prior to the DOL, Kevin was the Federal Legislative Director to the National Association of Home Builders for environmental policy dealing with such issues as the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act.
While at TRSA, Kevin has defended the linen, uniform and facility services industry on many federal, state and city issues ranging from fighting President Obama’s overtime proposal which would have cost the industry millions of dollars, updating healthcare linen regulations at the state level and enacting tax rebates saving laundry operators thousands of dollars annually. He was instrumental in leading the teams that developed two of TRSA’s certification programs: Clean Green and Hygienically Clean.
