Growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Kyle Hanlin has always considered Appalachia home. He graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in political science and minor in economics. After college, he began his career with a brief stint in grassroots for a presidential campaign. Kyle joins the Cardinal Institute with a decade of experience in growing free market organizations and helping free market supporters achieve their philanthropic goals.
Kyle enjoys spending time with his dog (a boxer named Kat), playing golf, all things NC State Wolfpack athletics, and watching baseball.
Fun fact: Kyle and his brother once put on the suits and sumo wrestled on the field during the 7th inning stretch of a minor league baseball game. He disputes the results.
