Chamber Member Spotlight:
San Pasqual Economic Developement Corporation
CEO, Hellyaachwehay (Wehay) Quisquis
Two years ago the tribe created an economic development corporation focused on diversifying and transforming the San Pasqual Mission Indian Band into a self-sustaining, tribal economy. Wehay (pronounced wa-hi') was appointed President & CEO.
The EDC has assumed the role as the non-gaming economic development arm of the San Pasqual Tribal government. As part of the San Pasqual EDC's strategic plan, the corporation is reaching out to neighboring communities, seeking and evaluating startup investments and partnerships where the unique tax advantages of their tribal corporation can be effectively employed in win-win arrangements.
As their closest neighbor, the Escondido community represents an ideal partner for San Pasqual's EDC. Wehay is reaching out and networking with local civic leaders, businesses and entrepreneurs. He plans to develop mutually beneficial relationships, and creating new employment through profitable business growth.
Please look for him, and say hello, at our upcoming Chamber networking events!
