    Rosario Marín Speaker Biography

    Rosario Marin is an entrepreneur, an international public speaker, author, and serves as advisor to two corporations in Australia and Mexico.

    She served in Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cabinet as Secretary of the State and Consumer Services Agency where she oversaw procurement of nearly $9 billion worth of goods and services, the management and development of the 1,600+ state’s real estate properties, oversight of the nation’s largest state employee pension funds CAL STRS and CAL PERS, the collection of state taxes over $104 billion dollars – the equivalent of the GDP of the eighth largest global economy, and programs managing a state workforce of more than 250,000 people, the state’s civil rights enforcement, consumer protection, and the licensing of 2.4 million Californians in more than 255 different professions.

    Appointed by President George W. Bush and unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Ms. Marin served as the 41st Treasurer of the United States.

    As Chairwoman of the California Integrated Waste Management Board from 2004 to 2006, Ms. Marin presided over the successful attainment of California’s 50 percent recycling mandate. In addition, Ms. Marin served as elected councilmember and Mayor of the City of Huntington Park.

    She is also the best-selling author of Leading Between Two Worlds: Lessons from the First Mexican-Born Treasurer of the United States telling her incredible journey of reaching the American Dream – arriving to the US without knowing English and a few resources, to having her signature appear on the U.S. dollar bill as the treasurer of the United States, and the first Latina in California to run for the U.S. Senate.

    Ms. Marin has held numerous leadership positions with nonprofit boards. Currently she is a member of the CSULA Foundation Board and formerly served for nine years in the Special Olympics International Board of Directors.
    For her contributions, she has been awarded countless recognitions including four Honorary Doctorate degrees.

    Rosario Marín Keynote Topics

    The American Dream is the fundamental story of this country, and my life is a grateful reflection of its reality" - says Rosario Marin, born in Mexico and an immigrant to the US who ended up succeeding in life thanks to the opportunities that were given to her in the US.

    When Rosario was fourteen years old she moved from Mexico to California with no grasp of the English language and few resources. She has since become a trailblazer in every sense: from becoming the first in her family to graduate from college to having her signature appear on the U.S. dollar bill as the treasurer of the United States, and the first Latina in California to run for the U.S. Senate.
