InfoJOHN HOEVEN was born in Bismarck, North Dakota. He earned a bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College in 1979 and a master's degree in business administration from Northwestern University in 1981. Hoeven served as executive vice president of First Western Bank in Minot from 1986 to 1993. From 1993 to 2000, he served as president and CEO of the Bank of North Dakota, during which time the bank's assets grew from $900 million to $1.6 billion.

Hoeven was elected governor of North Dakota in November 2000. He began his term by focusing on six pillars of growth to build North Dakota's future: education, economic development, agriculture, energy, technology and quality of life. Under his leadership, North Dakota has expanded and diversified its economy, adding many new jobs and businesses. In 2003, North Dakota led the nation in personal income and wage growth. While much of the nation struggled through a recession and reported budget deficits, North Dakota has grown and diversified its economy.

Because of Hoeven's stewardship, the state will end its current fiscal biennium with a substantial surplus going forward and no new taxes. His new budget continues to provide tax relief through higher state funding for K-12 education, additional revenue sharing with cities and counties, tax credits for farms and businesses, and a property tax break for seniors and people with disabilities. In his second term as governor, Hoeven remains committed to enhancing the state's business climate, holding the line on taxes, and promoting North Dakota's targeted industries which are agriculture, energy, technology, advanced manufacturing and tourism. He has proposed new initiatives for research and additional investments in education. These proposals include continued increases for teacher compensation and expanded funding for Centers of Excellence, an initiative that combines education and economic development to create higher-paying jobs and new business opportunities for North Dakotan citizens.

Hoeven serves as chair of the Midwestern Governors Association. He previously chaired the National Governors Association's Health and Human Services Committee and Natural Resources Committee, as well as the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission and Governors' Ethanol Coalition.
