As Executive State Director of the National Federation of Independent Business since 2011, Shivers has used his public service experience and political acumen to strengthen the NFIB’s reputation as one of PA’s most influential business organizations.  He has nearly 20 years of experience in the state’s legislative and political process, serving as the NFIB’s chief Pennsylvania lobbyist. Shivers and his team has worked with two Governors and the General Assembly to enact new laws beneficial to small employers. In addition, he directed the NFIB’s efforts to make health savings accounts a permanent and tax-free way for Pennsylvanians to save money to pay for medical expenses, ratified critical changes to Pennsylvania's unemployment and workers' compensation systems, and protected the rights of private property owners by enacting the nation's toughest eminent domain reforms and strengthening zoning notification requirements. Shivers also worked to make landmark changes to the state's procurement process ensuring that small-business owners have an opportunity to compete for government contracts.

Before joining NFIB, Shivers was deputy press secretary for Pennsylvania governors Tom Ridge and Mark Schweiker. He previously served as press secretary in the Pennsylvania Department of State and worked in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Shivers holds a bachelor's degree from Allegheny College.
