Paul Kavinoky has been named president of the Alabama Mining Association (AMA), succeeding Patrick Cagle, who is stepping down to pursue a career in ministry.

Kavinoky has more than 30 years of experience in external affairs, public policy, reputation management, and stakeholder engagement. During his career, he has worked in every aspect of mining including coal, hardrock minerals, aggregates, oil, and natural gas.

He will be departing the Birmingham office of law firm Bradley Arant, where he has served as a senior advisor in the governmental affairs and economic development practice group for the past seven years.

AMA said Kavinoky’s experience makes him a natural choice to lead the group and also fulfill its mission of promoting the safe, sustainable mining.

“We are pleased to have Paul leading the mining association at such a pivotal time in our industry. Paul’s extensive background in mining and lobbying experience will allow him to add immediate value to the association and all its members,” said Walt Scheller, Alabama Mining Association board of directors member.

“We wish Patrick good luck in his future endeavors and thank him for his five years of service to the industry.”

Before joining Bradley Arant, Kavinoky served as Chief Advisor for global mining company Rio Tinto in Washington, D.C., leading their U.S. government and external affairs strategy. He has extensive experience refining key policy objectives and implementing legislative and communication strategies. He also developed valuable relationships with domestic and international executives, government and non-government stakeholders, and key legislators at all levels.
