InfoWin Rockefeller, son of the late Governor Winthrop Rockefeller and grandson of the late John D. Rockefeller, Jr., was born in September 1948. He attended Pembroke College at the University of Oxford and is a graduate of the ranch management program at Texas Christian University. Rockefeller is the father of eight children. He and his wife, Lisenne, maintain homes at Winrock Farms, in Conway County, and in Little Rock.

Rockefeller was elected lieutenant governor of Arkansas in November 1996 in a special election when Mike Huckabee assumed the office of governor after Governor Jim Guy Tucker�s resignation on July 15, 1996. Rockefeller was elected for a full four-year term in November 1998 after receiving 67% of the votes cast.

As Arkansas' lieutenant governor, Rockefeller serves as the president of the Arkansas Senate and as a goodwill ambassador for Arkansas across the state and nation. He champions the issues of economic development and education. In 1997, he created Books in the Attic, a program using existing resources and volunteers to ensure access to reading opportunities for all children.

Long before his election to public office, Rockefeller has been active in public service. He is the immediate past president of the Quapaw Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America and currently serves on the Boy Scouts National Board of Directors. He served from 1981-1995 on the Arkansas State Police Commission. In 1991, he was appointed by President George Bush to serve on the President�s Council on Rural America and was elected chairman. He has served on numerous boards, including the Arkansas Nature Conservancy, the Arkansas Cancer Research Center, and the Arkansas Arts Center Foundation. He is the founder and chairman of the board of the International Billfish
Conservation Foundation.

In addition to his public service, Rockefeller serves as chief executive of Winrock Farms, Inc. and has interests in various small businesses around the state in the areas of retailing, automobiles, farming and the resort industry.
