Governor-Elect Ralph Northam Announces Kevin Hall as Executive Director of the Virginia Lottery
RICHMOND, Virginia (January 12, 2018) -- Kevin Hall will join the administration as Executive Director of the Virginia Lottery. Kevin has served as Senior Policy Advisor and Communications Director to U.S. Senator Mark R. Warner since 2009.
He previously served as Press Secretary to then-Governors Tim Kaine and Mark Warner. Kevin is a former Associated Press editor and reporter, news director and anchor with WRVA Radio.
Hall will succeed Paula Otto, who spent about two decades working for the Virginia Lottery, in two different stints. She was its first director of public affairs before leaving in 1997 to take a faculty position at Virginia Commonwealth University. Otto returned to the lottery in 2008, when Kaine, as governor, named her executive director.
Northam announced more than 30 appointments to senior leadership positions on Friday, the day before he takes office as Virginia’s 73rd governor.
