He has lectured at numerous colleges and universities on politics and entrepreneurship and is currently outlining a book on disruptive business strategies.

As the founder and executive chairman of Vitu, Kimball's responsibilities include the creation and execution of public affairs/political strategies, banking, finance and private equity strategies. 

Kimball also has a long history of political involvement both as a professional consultant and as a private citizen.
