Brian McGowan is a man caught in the middle — and he likes it that way. He’s spent his career working to bridge the gap between the public and private sector because he believes only when those interests align will we truly be able to solve the biggest problems plaguing our society. “Until we can figure out how to get the public and private sector better aligned, we’re going to waste resources solving problems we unintentionally created,” he argues.
Brian is currently working on this mission as CEO of Greater Seattle Partners, a public/private partnership created to advance economic growth and competitiveness for the Puget Sound region. Brian is slated to speak on Day 2 of Shadow Summit this fall, and we spoke to him to learn more about his vision for the role tech can play in successful economic growth.
