Sacramento State graduates over 9,000 students per year. These students need good, high paying jobs, and they want to stay in the Sacramento Region. I joined the Board of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council because GSEC is not only retaining jobs in the region, it is also bringing jobs, great jobs, to the region.

Dr. Robert S. Nelsen,
President, Sacramento State
Kevin Nagle

It is important to be a GSEC Board Member as it allows me to listen to other business and government leaders in our community share what they are executing within their own organizations and how we can develop our marketing and business plans in concert to allow all of our entities to become one giant orchestra operating in harmony, creating a better and more powerful Greater Sacramento region. If we can attract and create new employment opportunities in the region, it will drive needed tax revenue and can provide additional public services while enhancing quality of life.

Health Net joined the Board of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council because of their work to promote Greater Sacramento as the economic engine that those of us that have a significant employee and health care membership base here know that it is. We are pleased to be a part of helping shape Greater Sacramento’s future.

Health is more than what takes place in a clinical care environment. The socioeconomic health of a community is what leads to healthy neighborhoods. Being on the GSEC Board affords us the opportunity to connect with business leaders who share our hopes, dreams and aspirations for making Greater Sacramento an extraordinary place to live.

President and CEO, Sierra Health Foundation and The Center at Sierra Health Foundation
Scott Powell

Bringing CEOs together on the regional scale of GSEC is both difficult and impressive. Putting together a Board of Directors within that group to provide the leadership that can bring about results is also a tall order. I am very pleased to be asked to be part of this larger team that will shape regional economic policy.

The fun of our business is finding new ways to grow and add value into the next generation. Sacramento’s our home base for development in the Western US, and it has a deep pool of talented, well-educated young people to help us drive that growth. We’re looking forward to the next 75 years!

The impact of Sutter Health’s not-for-profit mission, to enhance the health and well-being of the communities we serve, reaches far beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics. As one of Sacramento’s oldest and largest employers, Sutter Health helps drive economies across the region. I joined the GSEC Board to actively work to enhance and promote the Greater Sacramento region so other businesses can benefit from all that this vibrant community has to offer, just as we have.

James Conforti,
Chief Operating Officer, Sutter Health
David Lucchetti

A number of years ago, myself and other business leaders from the Greater Sacramento region realized we needed to diversify our economy. We believed our region’s economic development group should take an aggressive approach to bring private industry and high-wage jobs to our region. I joined the Board because I believed in Greater Sacramento’s vision. It’s amazing to see what the organization has accomplished in such short time. They continue to work hard and lead our region into the future.

David J. Lucchetti,
President And CEO, Pacific Coast Building Products
Cassandra Jennings

I look forward to being an active participant in the pursuit of GSEC’s aspirational goals, as well as, a stakeholder in the creation of a high yield Greater Sacramento ecosystem that is competitive, productive and works for everyone.

Cassandra Jennings,
President and CEO, Greater Sacramento Urban League
Scott Hanson

Greater Sacramento is a spectacular region, and I know of many other business leaders who feel the same way. I watched from a distance as some of the business leaders in our community banded together to form the Greater Sacramento Economic Council to get us back to where other business leaders see this area as a great place. As the Council went from idea to reality, I’ve been very impressed by the leadership, the message and the results. I joined the Board to help with the funding so that we can bring more non-government jobs to the region, and move our reputation from an outdated Cow Town to the world-class city that we are.
