InfoThe Honorable Cecil D. Andrus is of counsel to The Gallatin Group.

"Cece" is Idaho's only four-term governor. His four years as U.S. Secretary of the Interior also make him the first Idahoan to serve in a presidential cabinet. Cece began his political career in 1960 when, at the age of 29, he was elected to the Idaho State Senate. Andrus has earned a national reputation for being able to strike a wise balance between often conflicting conservation and development positions. During his years in public service, he championed improvements in Idaho's educational system, presided over periods of sustained economic growth, helped create Alaska's great national parks, and pushed a national strategy for safe disposal of nuclear waste.

Cecil Andrus founded and now directs the Andrus Center for Public Policy at Boise State University. Since 1995 the Andrus Center has organized major conferences on western public lands issues, national fire policy, endangered species issues and the economy of the rural West.

He is a board member of several major Idaho and northwest corporations.

The Governor is an Oregon native who has lived in Idaho for nearly 50 years. He joined The Gallatin Group in 1995 following his retirement as governor.
