Bill Clinton to deliver Centurion keynote


Merrick, N.Y.--Former President Bill Clinton will be the keynote speaker at Centurion 2014, scheduled for Feb. 1 to 5 in Scottsdale, Ariz., organizers of the invitation-only show have announced.

Clinton’s keynote, “Remarks by Bill Clinton,” is slated to take place on the evening of Feb. 4.

The 42nd president of the United States, Clinton was the first Democrat in six decades to be elected twice, and led the country to the longest economic expansion in its history, including the creation of more than 22 million jobs.

Clinton, who now resides in Chappaqua, N.Y., also is the founder of the Clinton Foundation, an organization that aims to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment by fostering partnerships among governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations and private citizens.

Centurion announced Clinton as its keynote speaker via its e-newsletter, The Centurion, and on Facebook Thursday.

Past Centurion keynote speakers include Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Navy commander Mike Abrashoff and Joe Torre, former manager of the New York Yankees.
