About keynote speaker, Mike Rawlings, Mayor of Dallas

Mike Rawlings, Mayor of Dallas

As the former CEO of Pizza Hut, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings is familiar with big responsibility. When Rawlings was elected in 2011, he sought to drive public sector growth with private sector solutions. And it is working, in BIG WAYS.

Today, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is one of the fastest-growing metros in the nation.  Its citizens rank quality of life high compared to other cities, and innovative investments in infrastructure and amenities are designed to continue this trend. Thanks to its economic and demographic success, Dallas consistently ranks as one of the premier destinations for corporate relocations and facilities growth. The city is home to some of the biggest brands, including AT&T, Southwest Air, Texas Instruments, American Airlines Group, Dean Foods and many others.

Mayor Rawlings understands the economic conditions required to grow a city, and will share lessons he’s learned in his six years of public service.  Along with Louisville, Dallas is making strides in becoming more resilient to the physical, social and economic challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century.
