For decades, Los Angeles County’s South Bay region has been home to big industries such as international trade, aerospace, energy, and automotive, and has had one of the highest concentration of Fortune 500s in the state of California. As these and others industries evolve and grow in the region, a focused analysis of key economic and employment drivers, and the impacts and opportunities that exist was warranted.

Hosted by business news anchor for KNX 1070 Frank Mottek, the morning’s events will feature a report on real estate and housing trends by Dr. Jose Martinez, assistant professor of accounting, finance and economics at CSUDH; a speaker panel with Praveen Penmetsa, CEO and founder of Motivo Engineering, Michael Keenan, director of planning and strategy at the Port of Los Angeles, and Andre Oosthuizen, vice president of marketing with Porsche Cars North America, Inc., looking at their industries’ impact in the region; and the forecast report by Dr. Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist for the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation.
