Keynote Speaker Bio: Mayor Mitchell Landrieu of New Orleans
On August 23rd, Louisville area leaders had the chance to hear from the driving force behind New Orleans’ tremendous economic revitalization, Mayor Mitchell Landrieu.
As part of this year’s Leadership Louisville Luncheon, Landrieu discussed successes and shared insights on encouraging entrepreneurship, expanding technology and leveraging authenticity for lasting economic success. For decades, Landrieu has played a pivotal role in attracting tourism and talent to his home state of Louisiana. As lieutenant governor, he led the effort to rebuild the state’s tourism industry, launching a Cultural Economy Initiative to grow jobs in Louisiana’s culture, music, food and film industries. Now, under his leadership as mayor, New Orleans has been named the top metropolitan area for economic recovery, a model for school reform and, most recently, a hub for high-tech jobs and entrepreneurship. With unique, colorful cultures and storied civic traditions, Louisville and New Orleans have quite a bit in common – and plenty of room to grow.
