InfoGovernor Howard Dean, former DNC Chairman, presidential candidate, six term Governor, and physician, currently works as an independent consultant focusing on the areas of health care, early childhood development, alternative energy, and the expansion of grassroots politics around the world as an Independent Consultant and Strategic Advisor. Dean is also a contributor on CNBC.

Dean began his career in public service in 1982 when he transitioned from a full-time practicing physician to an elected representative in Vermont. Dean served as Governor for 12 years - the second longest serving in the state.

Respected on both sides of the political aisle, Dean was chairman of the National Governors’ Association, the Democratic Governors’ Association, and the New England Governors’ Conference while he served as Governor of Vermont. Dean left office in Vermont to run for President in 2003, where he implemented innovative fundraising strategies, such as use of the Internet.

As chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Dean created and implemented the “50 State Strategy” and the development of 21st century campaign tools. Dean is credited with helping Democrats make historic gains in 2006 and 2008. Under his leadership, significant resources were dedicated to revitalizing the Party by building and strengthening the organizational tools, technological capabilities, and infrastructure required to win while laying the foundation for a long-term Democratic majority.

Before entering politics, Dean received a medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City in 1978. Upon completing his residency at the Medical Center Hospital of Vermont, he went on to practice internal medicine in Shelburne, Vermont.

Dean was recently named Chairman of the Board of the Progressive Book Club, which works to empower progressives to develop, debate, and promote progressive ideas through books.

He is married to Dr. Judy Steinberg and they have two children, Anne and Paul.
