“John Musella of Evolve Business Strategies is someone who’s helped build a network of support for Santa Clarita Valley businesses when one almost didn’t exist. He then turned it into something stronger than ever, which is one of the many reasons why he belongs on this list.”
— Richard Budman, Signal Publisher/Owner
When John Musella was first tabbed as leader of the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce, it was an organization in peril. Financial problems abound due to past decisions, and forced the chamber out of its previous space.
Enter John Musella, Ivan Volschenk and Evolve Business Strategies. The team is now the representation for the growing chamber, while The Musella Group remains the voice for a number of major corporations that play important roles in the SCV.
Under Evolve’s leadership, the SCV Chamber also fosters a next generation of up-and-coming members of the business community with NextSCV, a separate leadership group.
The SCV Chamber of Commerce also is extremely active in working with a number of nonprofit organizations that serve those in need, and regularly holds events through its members to support these efforts. Through a huge growth in outreach and awareness, the Chamber is once again on the rise in the SCV.
