About the Author

Michael Luis is a consultant in public affairs and communications, based in the Seattle area. For the past 25 years he has been involved with a wide range of issues and leadership efforts that have affected the growth and development of the economy of the Seattle area. He has seen the story of Seattle’s economic evolution from the inside and has worked closely with the key individuals and organizations that have shaped that evolution.

Starting out as a staff member at the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce in the late 1980s, and continuing through his consulting practice, Mr. Luis had the unique opportunity to work with business leaders from both long established industries and newly emerging ones, as well as political and civic leaders at all levels. He has conducted economic and policy research on a wide range of topics and has a deep understanding of the fundamentals of the Puget Sound area economy. In addition, He has worked with numerous cities in North America and Europe and has engaged in economic research involving regions around the world. He began his career managing the Export Task Force, the bipartisan free-trade caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives.

In 2012 Mr. Luis was elected to the city council of Medina, Washington, and will serve as mayor for the 2012-2013 term. He has been in leadership roles in several non-profit and community groups in the Seattle area. He holds a master’s degree in International Affairs from the George Washington University and a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Washington.

With a family history in the Northwest stretching back to the 1890s, Mr. Luis has a deep appreciation for what makes the Seattle area unique. He is married and lives in Medina, Washington, where his three children are now the fourth generation to live in the family home on Evergreen Point Road.
