We are honored to have as our guest speaker for the evening Oz Griebel, Independent Candidate for Governor.
For 17 years Oz Griebel led the MetroHartford Alliance, the Hartford region’s largest organization of business leaders. During that time he has been heavily involved in advocating for state policies intended to create jobs by expanding the state’s economy. He has been called on many times to serve on government advisory panels or provide advice to
elected leaders on economic policy. He is running for governor as an independent candidate in 2018, because he believes strict adherence to party philosophies is preventing state leaders from building consensus on behalf of the people of the state.
As governor, he intends to lead an administration focused on listening and collaboration. He wants to harness the power of business leadership, and the expertise of people who work every day to make Connecticut a better place to live, to create a state government capable of growing the Connecticut’s business workforce and providing for those in our society who need government support.
Griebel has been a teacher and a coach. He has a law degree and has served on a number of corporate boards. Before joining the MetroHartford Alliance, he was CEO of Bank Boston Connecticut. He has been named “Business Person of the Year” by both the Hartford Courant(1995) and the Hartford Business Journal(2001). He lives in Hartford.
