Welcome to Aaron Chadbourne's Page
Aaron Chadbourne currently serves as a senior policy advisor to Governor Paul R. LePage in his home state of Maine. Prior to this role, Chadbourne worked as an engagement manager with McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm in Washington, D.C.
Growing up in Gorham, Maine, Aaron was quick to learn the importance of hard work and dedication. “As soon as I could talk, I was put to work in my grandmother’s business – selling vegetables at a roadside picnic table piled high with corn.” He would not only apply these early childhood lessons to the family business, but towards his education. After graduating from Gorham High School, Aaron went on to become a student at the prestigious Harvard University.
Throughout his undergraduate studies at Harvard, Chadbourne became increasingly interested in an education that combined both business and law. This interest prompted him to apply for both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School. Aaron graduated with an AB from Harvard College in 2006 and completed the joint degree program at Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School to earn a JD-MBA in 2011. In addition to these accomplishments, Chadbourne has been admitted to the Bar in the state of Maine and Massachusetts.
Today, Chadbourne works with Governor Paul R. LePage’s administration as a senior policy advisor. The LePage administration is responsible for the largest tax cut in Maine’s history, which has allowed low-income workers to pocket more of their hard-earned paychecks. In addition to the historic tax cut, the LePage administration has worked hard to fix Maine’s pension system, reform welfare programs, reduce regulations on businesses, and increase government transparency.
In his role as a senior policy advisor, Chadbourne advises the Governor and the executive branch of the State of Maine government on various issues including education, taxation, veterans, emergency management, defense, and government operations – leveraging many best practices from Aaron’s work in the private sector. Chadbourne works closely with legislators and constituents to advance the interests of Maine people and promote efficient, effective and accountable state government.
