The addition of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Senior Government Relations Advisor Kevin Kinross was noted in multiple Pittsburgh media outlets, including the Pittsburgh Business Times and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Both newspapers emphasized Kinross' considerable political experience including his current position as campaign manager for Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter's re-election bid. As the Post-Gazette noted, Kinross "brings more than a decade of practical knowledge managing statewide and regional political campaigns." He previously managed Allegheny Count Executive Dan Onorato's gubernatorial campaign, served as the Western Pennsylvania political director for Barack Obama's presidential campaign and former Governor Rendell's re-election bid.
