Elizabeth (“Liz”) Tanner was appointed Rhode Island Secretary of Commerce in June 2022, under Governor Daniel McKee. In that role, she administers the Executive Office of Commerce, the state agency charged with promoting commerce and fostering an economic environment in which Rhode Island’s businesses can grow and prosper.

Secretary Tanner oversees multiple state departments and quasi-governmental agencies. Among those, are the Department of Business Regulation, of which she was Director before she was appointed Secretary, and the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation, a quasi-state agency that collaborates with public, private, and nonprofit partners to offer consulting and funding assistance to businesses.

Known as a problem-solver with a passion for making it easier to do business in Rhode Island, Liz is a fierce advocate for governmental efficiency.

A graduate of the University of Rhode Island and Western New England University Law School, Liz has also received training from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
