Carlsbad Chamber’s Ted Owen Interviewed

by The Editors on June 20, 2009

Tedowencolor-SquareThe San Diego News Network’s Helen Kaiao Chang interviewed Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce CEO Ted Owen and got the longtime San Diego Business Journal publisher to answer five questions about his current job.

One of the reasons I was interested in this job is I’ve always had a penchant for wanting to counsel people on how to run a business. I love working with small-business people who have ideas and new products that they have no concept on how to take to the market, how to find financing. . . I get a great deal of satisfaction out of meeting with a person, on a number of occasions, for two to three hours at a time. My biggest satisfaction is … as they leave the chamber and look over their shoulders and wave goodbye, there’s a smile on their face. That’s payment enough for me. We do it for free.

Now that we think about it, Mr. Owen sounds like someone we should have spoken to years ago. . .
