What is Business Roundtable

Business Roundtable (BRT) is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy.

Carter has worked across the United States in the intersecting worlds of journalism, politics and communications. At Business Roundtable his duties embrace a wide range of writing assignments, including speeches, columns and other communications for BRT President John Engler. He began his newspaper career in Oregon in the mid-'80s. In the '90s, he worked as a Capitol reporter in Bismarck, N.D., and then worked as a campaign and policy adviser for two governors of North Dakota. Carter came to Washington, D.C., in 2001 to be a speechwriter for Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, moving on to handle communications duties at a federal financial agency and working as a lobbyist for Indiana governor's office. Before joining Business Roundtable, he spent five years at the National Association of Manufacturers as a speechwriter and primary author of the popular blog "Shopfloor." A native of Oregon, Carter earned a B.S. in history from Reed College and a master's degree from the Columbia School of Journalism.
