How Public Policy is Impacting your Business

Tuesday, May 18th | 10:30 – 11:30 AM Central


Bobby Jindal

Former Governor of Louisiana and Ares Capital Management Adviser

Bobby Jindal has a well-earned reputation as one of America’s most successful public sector executives and one of the boldest innovators in the health care and education sectors. Jindal’s used his two terms as Governor of Louisiana to rebuild and diversify the state’s economy and financial footing in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Jindal’s agenda included top-to-bottom reformation and privatization of the state-run charity hospital and the state’s healthcare payer systems. Fiscally, Jindal reduced the state budget by 26%, reduced the state employee headcount by 30,000, and implemented the largest income tax reduction in state history. With a bipartisan consensus, Jindal implemented statewide school choice programs and moved the state from the bottom five in ethics laws to the top five, according to independent analysts.

Jindal’s dramatic rework of Louisiana’s policy structure paid measurable dividends in the form of eight credit upgrades, $60 billion in private capital investment and a ranking in the top ten in the nation for job creation and the highest ever per-capita income ranking in state history.

Despite being the nation’s youngest governor when he was elected in 2007, Jindal had been well-prepared to become the state’s CEO, with stints as the head of the state Department of Health and Hospitals, as President of the University of Louisiana System, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and Executive Director of the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare – all before his thirtieth birthday.

In the private sector, Jindal advised senior management of Fortune 500 firms as an associate at McKinsey & Co. Jindal analyzed potential acquisition targets, assisted with product launches, and evaluated manufacturing processes versus best practices. Jindal managed teams of clients and consultants and aided health care payer, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and information technology clients. In recent years, Jindal has served as a consultant to Morgan Stanley and on the boards of WellCare and Cotton Holdings. He is currently an Operating Adviser for Ares Management, and serves on the board of Granicus. Jindal writes op-eds for the Wall Street Journal, and appears regularly on Fox Business Network.

Jindal graduated with an ScB from Brown University with honors in Biology and Public Policy, and received an M.Litt. in Politics from Oxford University where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
