SHOC Breakfast

Our good friends at the San Diego Hall of Champions were nice enough to invite all 34of us in the SMBA ’11 class to a special breakfast this morning. The SDHOC provided a delicious breakfast, but the main course was listening to both San Diego Padres’ owner Jeff Moorad and the Chargers’ Special Counsel to the President Mark Fabiani.

Moorad discussed his first-place Padres and the importance of putting community first. He then talked about how the Padres’ are taking steps to improve their brand, as well as highlighting the customer-experience Padres’ fans receive.

Fabiani, who is in charge of seeking opportunities for a new Chargers’ stadium, discussed the difficulties of building a new stadium in this economy and—especially—in the state of California. He emphasized how the Chargers and Padres are the “cultural fabric of this community” and followed by stating “very little brings a community together like sports”.

The SDHOC highlighted the SMBA ’11 class before questions to Moorad and Fabiani were allowed. Even more, the first two questions asked were from the class.

We were delighted to take part in such a great event and deeply honored to be featured among such high-profile executives.
