Secretary | Executive Director, Mission Economic Development Agency
San Francisco, CA
Luis Granados has served as the Executive Director for the Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) for the past seven years. During his tenure, he has worked to increasingly make asset building the focus of the organization. At the same time, he has worked to increasingly make low- and moderate income individuals, particularly Spanish-speaking Latinos, the primary constituency for the organization.
In this regard, he has led the development: of a business development program, whose services focuses on the long-term sustainability of local-serving businesses; a first-time home ownership program that focuses its efforts on improving the financial standing of working class families who have the goal of owning their home; policy program which seeks to increasingly address the issue of asset development from a legislative perspective.
Combined, these programs provide asset development services to over 1,000 families per year. Mr. Granados has a Masters of City and Regional Planning from the University of California at Berkeley and a Bachelor of Science from the University of California at Davis.
