To say Steve Largent has kept busy after an illustrious 14-year NFL career would be an understatement.
The former Seattle Seahawks star wide receiver, one of three players to have his number retired by the franchise, was elected into Congress just five years after retiring in 1989. He spent the next eight years in office before losing the governor race in Oklahoma. That’s when Largent left politics and went tech, becoming the president and CEO of CTIA, a trade association representing the U.S. wireless communications industry.
Now the 62-year-old is living the retired life in Oklahoma, spending time with his family and grandchildren. But he remains busy, sitting on multiple boards of public and private companies, including Nintex, the Bellevue-based 400-person workflow automation software company that will be exhibiting at the upcoming GeekWire Cloud Tech Summit on June 7.
