Scott Brown, who in 2010 became the first Republican elected to the U.S. Senate to represent the state of Massachusetts since 1972, is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at ACG Boston’s Growth Conference 2013 on May 29. Brown is expected to address such topics as the current climate for business in New England, the challenges facing the business community and what role government should play.

An opponent of the 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices in the Affordable Care Act, Brown is considered an advocate for medical device makers, which are playing a growing role in New England’s economy.
