PRESIDENT/CEO ECONOMIC RESOURCES CORPORATION
Los Angeles, CA
Job Function: Other
Posted: May 22, 2019

Background:

ECONOMIC RESOURCES CORPORATION
PRESIDENT/CEO
LOS ANGELES, CA
ABOUT ECONOMIC RESOURCES CORPORATION
Economic Resources Corporation (“ERC”) is a California nonprofit corporation whose mission is to promote economic development and job creation in underserved neighborhoods through a multi-disciplined program of small business support and targeted real estate investment. The company was established in 1968 by a group of Los Angeles business and civic leaders at the invitation of the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration.
Staying true to its mission, ERC has traditionally focused on small and medium business enterprises, seeking the creation of new jobs, higher incomes and entrepreneurial opportunities. Because business communities and their surrounding residential counterparts are intrinsically linked, ERC correlates business investment with improvements in other areas of the community creating strong interlocking relationships between Economic Development and Community Development. In addition to the development of industrial and commercial real estate, ERC has, during its existence, provided technical, management and financial assistance to businesses and other community nonprofit organizations.
History
Economic Resources Corporation was founded in 1968 to help address one of the causes of the 1965 Watts Riot, a severe lack of economic opportunity and job creation in the south Los Angeles. Like several United States cities during the decade of the 1960's, large parts of Los Angeles and it citizens suffered frustration over the lack of job opportunity, and general economic disenfranchisement. Something had to be done. In Los Angeles the answer was a collective approach that required teamwork and direction, and the creation of several organizations formed to address specific issues in specific communities. ERC was one of those organizations, and was formed to help bring jobs, economic opportunity, and improve the local infrastructure by developing real estate projects with the potential to serve as catalysts for other investments.
Through the years, this unique ERC perspective caused it to become well versed in the issues confronting a minority business community attempting to join the mainstream. Thus, ERC became a repository of information data and guidance for minority businesses seeking opportunity and change.
To effectuate our mission, ERC focused its energies on the development of industrial and commercial real estate to create quality places of business. This in turn, attracted and retained industrial/commercial enterprises rich with job opportunities, bringing much needed economic activity to the target area.
With sound management and financial acumen, ERC has not only survived and accomplished its original objectives, it has thrived.
