Steve Ballmer, Co-Founder
Steve Ballmer is the Co-Founder of Ballmer Group, which supports efforts to improve economic mobility for children and families in the United States who are disproportionately likely to remain in poverty.
He is the former Chief Executive Officer of Microsoft, which during his tenure grew to almost $80 billion in revenue and was the third most profitable company in the United States. He is also the chairman of the LA Clippers basketball team.
Steve also leads USAFacts, a not-for-profit project seeking to ground our public debates in fact, and improve transparency in government spending, taxes raised, trends, and outcomes achieved, much as corporations do through their 10-K reports. He has taught at Stanford University on this topic as well as on business leadership.
He grew up near Detroit, where his father worked as a manager at Ford Motor Company. Ballmer earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and economics from Harvard University. Steve and his wife Connie have three sons and reside in Bellevue, WA.
