29th Annual KABA Banquet

Governor Gary Locke

Governor Gary Locke

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: KABA is excited for keynote by Gary Locke who has had a distinguished career in public service as Washington State Governor, U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and most recently U.S. Ambassador to China. As Governor, he oversaw 280,000 new private sector jobs, despite two national recessions. He also had the most diverse cabinet in state history and more than half his judicial appointees were women and 25% people of color. During his tenure, Washington was ranked one of America’s four best managed states. As Secretary of Commerce, he led President Obama's National Export Initiative to double American exports; assumed a troubled 2010 Census but which under his supervision ended on time and $2 billion under budget; and achieved the most significant reduction in patent application processing in the agency's history: from 40 months down to one year. He is currently a Senior Advisor and Consultant for Davis Wright Tremaine.
