Peter Dixon

US Congress (CA-16)

I'm a Marine, entrepreneur, and dad.

Peter Dixon is an accomplished entrepreneur, veteran, and family man with a strong record of public service and leadership. Raised in the 16th Congressional District, Dixon is the oldest of four siblings and hails from a family with a strong tradition of military and local public service. Dixon joined the Marine Corps and led young men and women in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan to defend the country after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It is on the battlefield where he saw first-hand the challenges faced by those on the frontlines fighting for our democracy, and the leadership and teamwork required for America’s success. His commitment to service then led him to the Pentagon, where he spearheaded initiatives integrating disruptive technologies into the military. His expertise in combating corruption led to his recruitment to Hillary Clinton’s State Department during the Obama Administration, where he worked with non-profits and the Federales to work against cartel violence in Mexico. As a born and bred resident of the Bay Area, the welfare of the local community is personal to Dixon. He seeks to serve his country once again by fighting for working families and delivering solutions and resources for the biggest challenges facing residents—from healthcare, reproductive rights, and education to housing and immigration. Peter is driven by a deep belief in access to the American Dream, a commitment to defending democracy, and the faith that, with the right leadership, the 21st century can still be the American Century. A Silicon Valley entrepreneur, Dixon is the co-founder and former CEO of Second Front Systems, a cybersecurity company that brings game-changing commercial tech to the U.S. government and helps usher it into the 21st century, equipping the American people with best, most cutting-edge tools. As a business owner, Dixon understands what it’s like to worry about making payroll, and ensuring your business succeeds for the employees counting on you. He will be Silicon Valley’s ambassador to America, bringing our critical innovation to the world. Dixon is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He lives in Portola Valley with his wife and is a proud father of three girls.
