Carl DeMaio


Carl DeMaio knows how to reform government and has built his business and political career on making broken government programs work again for the people.

At the age of 23, Carl DeMaio started his first company — the Performance Institute — to provide training and consulting solutions to help financially-troubled government entities cut costs while improving performance. DeMaio turned his business success into a life-long crusade to improve the performance, transparency, efficiency and accountability of government at all levels.

DeMaio won a seat on the San Diego City Council in 2008 — and helped turn that city around from the brink of bankruptcy through his “Roadmap to Recovery” reform agenda.
