Game Changer: Mary Burke

Mary Burke


Mary Burke’s ties to Wisconsin run deep. Her father started the Trek Bicycling Corporation when she was a teenager. She would later become its Director of European Operations and lead the Strategic Planning Department. Now, a highly accomplished business woman and public servant, Mary is ready to move Wisconsin beyond partisan fighting and get the Governor’s office back working for the people of the state.


Governor – Wisconsin – Challenger. Mary is challenging incumbent Governor Scott Walker. She is the first woman to be nominated by the Democratic Party for Governor.


Mary previously served as Wisconsin’s Secretary of Commerce where she focused on attracting new businesses to Wisconsin.

As Trek’s Director of European Operations, Mary established sales and distribution operations in 7 countries, increasing annual sales from $3 million to over $50 million.

She currently serves on the Madison School Board; she was elected in 2012.
