Kim Hardy Joins Thacher Associates as Managing Director

Former New York City Deputy Commissioner and Special Counsel for Regulatory Compliance Kim Hardy Joins Thacher Associates as Managing Director (New York, May 5, 2014) Thacher Associates, a subsidiary of K2 Intelligence, Inc., and the construction and real estate industry leader in integrity and compliance solutions, is pleased to announce that Kimberly D. Hardy has joined as Managing Director. Ms. Hardy joins Thacher from the City of New York’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), the nation’s largest municipal affordable housing agency. At HPD, she established innovative monitoring procedures to address compliance issues including, but not limited to, prevailing wage, minority and women owned business enterprises (MWBE) and fair housing requirements. She also directed the development of thousands of affordable housing units and commercial properties during her tenure. She began her career as an associate at an international law firm where she represented insurance industry clients from the firm’s London, Newark and New York offices. Kim earned her BA from North Carolina Central University and her JD from Yale Law School. “Kim brings tremendous value and expertise to Thacher Associates with more than 15 years of legal and executive experience in regulatory compliance, real estate financing and government contracts,” said Toby Thacher, CEO of Thacher Associates. “Her expertise, particularly in the areas of integrity, prevailing wage and MWBE requirements, maximizes our capacity to help clients succeed in addressing these requirements. Her extensive experience in developing and implementing compliance programs will enhance our ability to deliver solutions to clients that identify systemic problems, enhance their reputations and protect the bottom line." Thacher Associates has provided construction integrity monitoring on such high profile projects as the post-9/11 Ground Zero clean-up, the ongoing rebuilding of the World Trade Center site, the construction of the new Yankee Stadium, the MTA’s East Side Access and the Second Avenue subway lines, Columbia University’s Manhattanville Project, and the building of headquarters for such corporate giants as the Bank of America, AOL/Time Warner, Brookfield Properties, I.A.C and The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. “Each year developers, contractors, government agencies and other organizations attempting to navigate the increasingly complex local, State and Federal regulatory requirements face a range of threats,” said Ms. Hardy. “An organization can lose countless dollars and, perhaps more importantly, its reputation, if questions arise regarding the organization’s integrity and/or compliance protocols. That’s why Thacher Associates created the integrity monitoring industry and has consistently delivered solutions and value to its clients. I look forward to helping Thacher Associates protect clients against financial and reputational risks by providing clients with the tools to navigate the regulatory landscape successfully.”
