Governor Jeb Bush – Chairman of Finback Investment Partners 

Jeb Bush is a two-term Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007 and 2016 presidential candidate.  Before that, he was a successful investor who built a major real estate company in South Florida and has been involved with founding several Private Equity funds prior to and after his Presidential run and is currently the Chairman of Finback Investment Partners.  As a politician, he is known as bringing civility to the discussion of bi-partisan views and his commitment to forging a better future for America as the Founder and Chairman of the Excellence in Education Foundation.  He brings a unique perspective to the discussion as few have his knowledge, insight, and ability to provide context to what is currently going on with the campaigns.
