Steven Weathers

Chief Executive Officer

World Trade Center San Diego

2980 Pacific Hwy.
San DiegoCA92101

It's been nearly two decades since Steven Weathers took part in one of his most important business trips abroad: joining a team of local civic leaders who flew to Denmark in the mid-1990s to hammer out the deal that brought Legoland to Carlsbad.

And now -- after heading economic development organizations in Arizona, Ohio and Georgia -- Weathers is back in San Diego again, this time as the new chief executive of the local World Trade Center.

His goal: to help more local companies make a "global footprint" overseas.
