CEDC Annual Meeting - Tuesday, March 10, 2020 - Cowlitz County Expo and Event Center Featuring Keynote Presentations from the dynamic duo of Suzi and Eric Levine! Suzan “Suzi” LeVine was appointed by Governor Inslee as Commissioner for the Employment Security Department (ESD) on July 9, 2018. At a time when society is experiencing massive technological and demographic shifts, she brings relevant leadership experience and expertise from the public, private, and non-profit sectors to help people navigate their paths forward to be lifelong career ready. She served as U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein from June 2014 until January 2017. During that time, she played a key role in the signing of a Joint Declaration of Intent between Switzerland and the U.S. to collaborate on apprenticeship, partnering with 30 companies to bring and/or expand their Swiss style apprenticeship model into the U.S. Suzi graduated from Brown University with degrees in English and mechanical engineering.
An entrepreneur and small business owner, Eric LeVine has had a distinguished career as a leader at Microsoft, as founder/CEO of CellarTracker, and, more recently, as a work-at-home dad. He grew up in Boston and then, after graduating from Harvard University with an A.B. in History, pursued a technology career that took him from Lotus to Microsoft, where he ultimately led a team pioneering the use of crowd-sourced big data for software reliability. He applied the knowledge and experience he gained from this data project to his passion for wine and then turned his hobby into his work by creating CellarTracker, the world’s leading cellar management software and the pioneer in crowd-sourced wine reviews.
Suzi and Eric have two children. They enjoy hiking, biking, traveling and playing with their dogs.
