Margaret Anderson Kelliher

Minnesota High Tech Association

President and CEO




Anderson Kelliher relinquished her dream of becoming a vetrinarian to embark on a 12-year legislative career including two terms as Speaker of the Minnesota House. Today, her association represents hundreds of technology companies and preaches the gospel of STEM education for younger generations. Through the Governor's Task Force on Broadband, she's expanding high-speed Internet to all corners of the state. Although she was edged out of the 2010 gubernatorial race by fellow Democrat Mark Dayton, it's anyone's guess where her ambition may take her, or the Minnesota High Tech Association, next.
