VIDEO: Developing jobs for San Joaquin
December 11, 2011
• Mike Ammann sees ‘green’ potential for San Joaquin County
• Taking stock after six months
Michael Ammann knows well the economic potential of the Central Valley, from his time as head of the Kern Economic Development Corporation in Bakersfield through a similar post in Solano County to his current position as president and chief executive officer of the San Joaquin Partnership in Stockton.
Now at the mid-point of his first year with the Partnership, and just after prospecting trips to Chicago, Ill., and Austin, Texas, he sat down with CVBT and veteran Central Valley business journalist William West to assess what he’s seen and offer observations on what could be ahead for the region.
In this video, the first of several parts digested from the nearly 90-minute interview, he talks about the potential for new jobs from the new but growing industries surrounding alternative-fuel vehicles, such as electric cars.
