Governor Rick Snyder ran for office with a pledge to “reinvent Michigan.” Since becoming Michigan’s48th governor on Jan. 1, 2011, Snyder has worked with his trademark “relentless positive action” to do just that.

Michigan has eliminated its $1.5 billion deficit and delivered balanced budgets for the second straight year. Snyder has worked with the Legislature to bring greater simplicity, fairness and
efficiency to the state’s tax structure, pay down Michigan’s long-term obligations, and enact numerous other meaningful reforms that have made Michigan the nation’s “comeback state.”
This is Snyder’s first foray into politics. He earned three degrees from the University of Michigan, all by age 23. Snyder then worked as a tax accountant at Coopers & Lybrand. He later joined Gateway, helping it to expand to a Fortune 500 company, before forming his own venture capital firm in Ann Arbor. Snyder and his wife, Sue, have three children.
