CEO brings executive experience with private, non-profit and public sectors
San Diego, CA – The Asian Business Association (ABA) named Jason Paguio as the organization’s new President and CEO. Founded in 1990, ABA provides a strong voice on business, cultural and political issues of interest to San Diego’s Asian and Pacific Islander community. Its mission is to unite, promote and advocate on behalf of the region’s Asian and small business community.
As President and CEO, Paguio will focus on creating more opportunities and greater access to capital, increasing civic engagement, strong advocacy for business and diversity, expanding partnerships and cultivating the next generation of leaders through a mentorship program for aspiring entrepreneurs and executives.
“A strong, growing and diverse business community is integral to maintaining – and improving – the quality of life for all residents,” said Paguio. “We believe that a rising economic tide lifts all boats, and that if local businesses both small and large succeed, we can create more local jobs, more revenue, and a more stable economy for our region.”
Paguio brings more than 12 years of experience as a small business owner and business advocate as a public policy advisor in local government. As a community leader, he co-founded multiple non-profit organizations and has served on various boards, commissions and committees with local philanthropic, civic and business institutions including the NTC Foundation, Asian Pacific American Coalition (APAC), San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and the City of Coronado Transportation Commission.
Paguio heads an organization that thrived under the leadership of former President and CEO, Wendy Urushima-Conn and its strong board of business executives, corporate sponsors and members. “Wendy leaves a legacy of what have been some of ABA’s most successful years,” said ABA Board Chairperson, Jeni Burgess. “As we continue to move forward, we intend to build upon that foundation to positively impact the region’s economy and the small business community.”
The organization has recently launched educational workshops and one-on-one, no-cost consulting to ensure small businesses have the resources they need to be successful. ABA has also recently partnered with the Small Business Development Center.
ABA San Diego provides a strong voice on business cultural and political issues of interest to San Diego’s Asian & Pacific Islander community.
