Class of 2020 Commencement Speaker

Honorable John Chiang (ret.)

John Chiang serves as a member of the Board of Directors of Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. and Aegis Systems. In addition, he serves on the corporate advisory boards of Pasadena Private Finance, Calyx Peak, Faraday Future, and Adept Development.

From 2015-2019, John Chiang served as California’s 33rd State Treasurer. As the State’s banker, he oversaw two trillion dollars of transactions annually and was the nation’s largest issuer of municipal bonds.

Prior to being elected Treasurer, Chiang served as State Controller from 2007 through 2014. During the Great Recession, he took steps to preserve cash to meet obligations to education and bond payments. His cash management decisions – which included delaying payments and issuing IOUs – were instrumental in keeping the State’s credit rating from plunging into junk status, and his actions saved taxpayers millions of dollars. Additionally, Chiang aggressively used his audit programs to identify more than $9.5 billion of fraud, waste, and abuse in government programs, the most by any Controller in California’s history.

In 1998, he was elected to California’s Board of Equalization and served two terms, including three years as chair. I the history of the BOE, he sponsored the most legislative proposals that were enacted into law.

John Chiang served as an Aspen Institute Rodel Fellow, Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellow, and University of Southern California Center for the Political Future Fellow.

Chiang graduated with honors from the University of South Florida with a degree in finance and received his law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center.
