Allan Zaremberg

President and CEO of the California Chamber of Commerce

B.S., Economics, Penn State University

J.D., McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific, where he was a member of the Law Journal

As President and CEO of the California Chamber of Commerce, the largest broad based business organization in California with almost 16,000 members, Allan Zaremberg has worked to enhance the state's economic growth. In this endeavor, he has led statewide ballot campaigns against anti-business proposals and has successfully led balanced reforms of workers’ compensation and endangered species laws. Citing potential economic harm, Allan was a passionate and outspoken critic of a California only law that capped carbon emissions required by California’s new climate change legislation (AB 32). Instead, he advocated a focus on global solutions, in particular the transfer of cleaner, environmentally friendly technologies to countries like China and India, and the implementation of tax credits to spur adoption of energy-efficient business practices. Since the passage of AB 32 Allan is seeking a fair and balanced implementation that will encourage other states and countries to join with California. Before joining the California Chamber of Commerce, Zaremberg served as chief legislative advisor to and advocate for Governors George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson.
