He has worked in both the public and private sectors, founding the investment firm Bain Capital in 1984 and later becoming CEO of its parent company, Bain & Company, in 1990.

He did not run for reelection, instead announcing that he would campaign for the Republican nomination in the 2008 presidential race, though he later lost the nomination to John McCain (R-Ariz).

He has served as Chairman of the Republican Governors Association (2006) and Chairman of Free & Strong America PAC (2008-present). He also helped organize the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.
