Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) recently announced that it has named Malcolm Yates as the organization’s first director of government relations.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to officially welcome Malcolm to the PHMC family, as he has dedicated his career and personal life to advocating for communities,” Richard J. Cohen, PHMC president and CEO said in announcing the post. “Now more than ever, an integrated and collaborative approach to public health across public and private sectors is critical.”

Yates comes to PHMC after serving more than two years as the district outreach and community affairs director for U.S. Representative Mary Gay Scanlon (PA – 5th District). Prior to working with Scanlon, he served as chief of staff at the PA House of Representatives for two years.

Earlier in his career, Yates worked for CoreDialLLC in Blue Bell; RR Donnelly in Glenn Mills; Comcast in West Chester and New Castle, DE; Vanguard in Malvern; and Broadview Networks in King of Prussia.

He currently serves on the boards of Delaware County Industrial Development Authority, Southwest Philadelphia Community Development Corporation, Community Learning Center and VestedIn Financial Services Inc. Yates is also convenor of the Delaware County Black Caucus, co-chair of the Southwest Delaware County Democratic Committee and was elected state treasurer of the Pennsylvania State Committee Democratic Black Caucus in 2018.

According to the announcement, Yates became an advocate very early in his life —  working with the Vietnam Veterans of America’s campaign for the war against drugs and violence when he was just 11.

“After his brother, Marcus Yates, was murdered at the age of five in a Southwest Philadelphia candy store,” the announcement states, ” Yates remains an advocate for nonviolence and stricter gun control laws through the Marcus J. Yates Foundation. He is also involved in Lost Dreams on Canvas, a program that preserves the memories of the children whose lives were taken through senseless violence.”

Yates holds two bachelor’s degrees, from University of Phoenix and Norfolk State University, and two master’s degrees, from Neumann University and Widener University.

He also holds PMP certification from Springhouse Consulting and Education in Exton, and completed a Diverseforce ImpactED board governance and leadership fellowship with the University of Pennsylvania, Fels School of Government.
