Bill Camarillo, CEO of Oxnard, Calif.-based Agromin, one of California's largest manufacturers of earth-friendly soil products made from organic material, was named chairperson of the Ventura County Economic Development Association (VCEDA). He takes over the helm from outgoing chair Mike Silacci of AT&T.
"VCEDA is Ventura County's business advocate. It promotes policies, legislation and programs designed to stimulate business and the economy in the county," says Camarillo. "As chairperson, one of my goals is to encourage growth in emerging, sustainable green industry sectors. Our county is already nurturing and attracting innovative businesses in renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, clean technology, recycling and water management."
“Bill is an energetic and proven leader. We are fortunate to have him as the VCEDA chair for 2011. The board and staff are looking forward to working with him. VCEDA has an ambitious agenda for 2011. Bill is the right person for the job," says Bill Buratto, VCEDA president/CEO.
Established in 1949 and recognized as a credible political force, VCEDA gives members an opportunity to interact with Ventura County’s civic, corporate, small business and government leaders for a voice in planned, quality growth.
