Statement of SVLG CEO Ahmad Thomas on Election of New House Speaker

“I am relieved to see the end of the leadership chaos from the last few weeks with the election of a new Speaker of the House. I am hopeful the House of Representatives will immediately get back to the important work of representing the interests of the American people at home and abroad, starting with funding the government and avoiding a shutdown.

As always, we welcome the opportunity to work constructively with our representatives in Congress to continue bolstering the competitiveness of the innovation economy and working towards a more equitable, sustainable, and inclusive future for all.”

— Ahmad Thomas, CEO of Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG)
