Greg Gianforte is a husband, father, grandfather, businessman, sportsman, and public servant. On November 3, 2020, he was elected Montana’s 25th governor, earning more votes than any candidate for governor in Montana history and with the largest margin of victory for a first-term governor since 1920. Governor Gianforte was sworn in on January 4, 2021.
Before entering public service, Gianforte spent his entire career creating jobs and opportunities as he started five different startup companies. Greg and Susan Gianforte founded RightNow Technologies in 1997 from their Bozeman home and grew it into the town’s largest commercial employer, creating over 500 high-paying Montana jobs.
After 34 years in the private sector, Gianforte was elected to serve as Montana’s lone voice in the U.S. House of Representatives. Representing Montana in Congress from June 2017 to January 2021, Gianforte voted to cut taxes for every American taxpayer, roll back unnecessary, anti-jobs regulations, lower health care costs, and protect the Montana way of life, including our public lands.
As governor, Gianforte is using his experience as an entrepreneur and job creator to get our economy going, get Montana open for business, create more good-paying Montana jobs, and bring better customer service to state government. Gianforte is committed to cutting taxes, cutting red tape, keeping families and communities safe, improving education, and protecting our Montana way of life.
Married since 1988, Greg and Susan Gianforte raised their four children in Bozeman hunting, fishing, rafting, climbing, skiing and backpacking on Montana’s public lands.
