CEO Tom J. Donohue

Thomas J. Donohue is the President and CEO of the United States Chamber of Commerce located in Washington, DC. The United State Chamber of Commerce is a generally conservative[1] group that supports pro-business causes, and it is the largest and oldest trade association in the United States.[1] As its president, Donohue has increased the Chamber's profile in Washington.[1]

Before joining the Chamber in 1997, Donohue was the President and CEO of American Trucking Associations[1] for 13 years.

The New York Times writes that “through Mr. Donohue’s efforts, the Chamber has become the most visible and effective business lobby in the country.” The Washington Post says “Nobody has mastered the new Washington game better than Tom Donohue.”

Among his many achievements, Donohue established the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform, which has won significant cases in the courts, at the state and federal levels, and in elections for state attorneys general and Supreme Court judges.

Donohue is president of the National Chamber Foundation as well as the Center for International Private Enterprise, a program of the National Endowment for Democracy dedicated to the development of market-oriented institutions around the world.
