The EDC of Southwest California, the Murrieta office of Stifel Nicolaus, and the cities of Murrieta and Temecula are hosting the return of Dr. Stephen Wood, Ph.D., to give the keynote address at the EDC’s inaugural Annual Signature Awards Presentation.
Wood is the North America chief market strategist for Russell Investments. Last year, Wood presented to a large crowd at the EDC’s Quarterly Breakfast. More than 200 area business leaders attended the event to hear first-hand Wood’s opinions on the global economy and how it impacts Southwest California as a region.
“We have watched much of what Dr. Wood predict unfold over the past year,” said Morris Myers, executive director of the EDC. “I look forward to the more in-depth presentation he plans to make this year.”
The event is planned for Nov. 15 at South Coast Winery in Southern California Wine Country. The Annual Signature Awards are presented to businesses that contribute to the overall economic growth of the Southwest California region.
Wood is a frequent guest on CNBC, and often quoted in The Wall Street Journal. “The region is fortunate to have Dr. Wood share his views on the economy and his outlook on the future” said Stan Harter, a local attorney and board president of the EDC. “His insights really focused on Southern California and where we were headed as a force within the global economy.”
