Charlie Weaver

Executive director

Minnesota Business Partnership




For the first time in eight years, Charlie Weaver will be working with a new governor on policy issues that are important to Minnesota’s largest employers. The 2019 legislative session will be an opportunity for Weaver, a former state legislator, to forge a strong relationship with the new state leader as a workforce shortage poses challenges for companies seeking to grow here. Weaver, who joined the partnership in 2003, will be advocating for education policies that help companies meet pressing needs for employee skills. He’ll also be pursuing tax, health care, wage, and other policies to attract workers and businesses to the state.
