K Street Files: A New Miner

Harold Quinn, the National Mining Association’s chief legal counsel and senior vice president, is taking over as president and chief executive officer of the association.

[IMGCAP(1)]The announcement, which was made Wednesday by NMA Chairman Jim Roberts in an e-mail to staff, comes after Kraig Naasz was relieved of his position by the NMA board in August. Naasz served as head of the trade association for three years.

Quinn had been selected by the board to serve as interim president after Naasz’s departure. It was the second time Quinn had taken on that role. He served as interim CEO after Jack Gerard left the mining association in 2005 for the American Chemistry Council.

Quinn had been senior vice president for legal and regulatory affairs and general counsel at the National Coal Association, which in 1995 merged with the American Mining Congress to form the NMA.
