Outbound San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed On Business Wins, Wants

January 14, 2015 Nemes Random

San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed is headed back into private life– and private law practice. So we jumped at the chance to ask the termed-out politician for a few takeaways on company and land-use problems prior to he goings the door.A practiced business enhancer, Reeds 2 terms extended both the worst recession to strike the Valley in decades and its rising recuperation. His cost-cutting measures set the city on firmer fiscal footing, even if his pension reforms led to public squabbling with staff member unions.Key victories include

landing significant head office from Brocade and Samsung Semiconductor, but Reed is still audibly annoyed at not sealing a deal to move the Oakland As downtown. We worked at the speed of business on

this interview, and its been edited for length and clarity. (As for where hes going? Reed hasn’t named the law companylaw practice hell be joining. )NDW: Most crucialEssential accomplishment as it connects to

the companybusiness community?CR: Demonstrating this concept of working at the speed of company, and

being able to provide task after project for driving-industry business on time. And having a personnel doing a terrific task beginning with generally Brocade, which is where I created this working at the speed of company concept.NDW: You duplicate everything the time. Who developed it?CR: Im quite sure I came up with it on my own

. I didnt have a marketing department.NDW: Whats been the most difficult difficulty on company issues?CR: The hardest ones are the ones that we have not had the ability to overcome the objective line, like baseball.Samsung Semiconductors head office– was toughwas difficult due to the fact that we were competing with Austin

and the entire state of Texas. Persuading the individualsindividuals in Korea we might do this was quite challenging all in all.

When it come to Samsung, the Go-Biz department and the governor himself got engaged and made some things occur.
