About the Speaker

Commissioner Bill Bryant was elected to represent King County citizens as a Port of Seattle
Commissioner in the fall of 2007. In January 2008, he was sworn into office by former Governor
Dan Evans, who co-chaired his campaign. Bryant immediately began increasing the Port’s
transparency and public accountability, working to protect Puget Sound, and improving our
transportation system. After only one year on the Commission, in 2009, he was elected President
of the Commission by his peers. He served as Commission President for three consecutive
years. In 2010 he was named Maritime Public Official of the Year by the Propeller Club.

Commissioner Bill Bryant was born in Morton, and grew up on the Olympic Peninsula and in
Olympia. After attending Capital High School, he studied trade and diplomacy at Georgetown
University. He put his training to work immediately as the director of Washington Governor John
Spellman’s trade council. He then lived in Yakima for seven years, traveling around the world
working to eliminate unfair foreign trade barriers and open new markets for Washington's fruit

In 1992, Bryant moved to Seattle and founded Bryant Christie Inc., a company that works to
eliminate foreign trade barriers, develops new international markets. He is also an investor and
advisor to Deneki Outdoors, a company with fly fishing camps in Alaska, British Columbia, South
Andros, and Chile.

In addition to his entrepreneurial interests, Bryant has been appointed by both Democratic and
Republican administrations, Congress, and the United States Export Import Bank to advise on
our nation’s trade policies.
