Panelist Bio


Mark R. Warner
Governor of Virginia

Mark R. Warner was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was the first in his family to graduate from college, completing his degree at George Washington University in 1977 and graduating from Harvard Law School in 1980. He is a founding partner of Columbia Capital Corporation, and helped create more than 70 telecommunications and information technology companies. His regional venture capital funds have helped small business start-ups in underserved areas of Virginia, and his ongoing philanthropic endeavors help families find care for seniors, help minority college students find jobs in the tech industry, and help bridge the digital divide through computer instruction in houses of worship.

Warner served as chairman of the Southern Governors' Association, states' co-chairman of the Appalachian Regional Commission, and chairman of the Education Commission of the States, a national nonpartisan policy organization. Warner is currently the chairman of the National Governors Association. He is married to Lisa Collis and is the father of three daughters.
