This month, Higgs’ Real Estate Partner Doug Kerner will assume the position of Vice Chair of the South County Economic Development Council (SCEDC) for the 2016/2017 fiscal year. The SCEDC is a non-profit organization formed in 1989 by a group of South San Diego County business and community leaders.
Kerner first became active in the organization in 2011 and will join the other Vice Chair, Sally Preston from Mission Federal Credit Union. In this role, he will oversee the operation of the SCEDC, provide guidance to the organization as part of the Executive Committee, and help set the goals and objectives that align with SCEDC’s mission.
“Next year the organization will focus on the aerospace industry and aviation as it relates to defense,” shared Kerner. “My goal will be to help ensure that we remain focused on that industry to help it continue to grow and succeed in the region. We’ll also be boosting tourism in the South County, and we recently developed a new website to promote that effort.”
