The Chino Valley Chamber Board of Directors recently voted to confirm a new slate of members to join the board. To learn a little more about each of them, check out their bios below!
Brandon is a born and raised native of Southern California. With over 20+ years of hospitality experience, if there is one thing Brandon understands, it is the importance of making a city feel like home to all. Brandon was brought on board to Twenty Four Seven Hotels in 2017. After a year of working at multiple properties and stepping in where they needed help, Brandon was presented with the opportunity to be the opening General Manager of a newly built TownePlace Suites by Marriot Ontario Chino Hills. He quickly fell in love with everything the Chino, Chino Hills area had to offer. In 2019, he and his wife purchased a home in Chino and have set their roots in this city with their dog, Roo.
“I want to thank the Board of Directors for the opportunity to serve this city. This city is beautiful and booming with potential. I am excited to take my seat on the board for the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce and look forward to being a part of the ongoing growth and development of local business and travel to Chino Valley.” –
What started as a ten-year old’s landscaping business in 1969 has evolved into a company that has achieved a client combined total gross sales value of over $65,000,000 a year. How did MSI get here? When our founder, Clark Canedy, was ten years old, he ran two paper routes to pay for his hobby of building and flying remote-controlled airplanes. His entrepreneurial spirit was strong, and he began his own landscaping business at an early age. In college, Clark furthered his interest in business by pursing a degree in accounting, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Law. Clark also furthered his interest in aviation by learning to fly real planes. He paid his own way
through college, learning valuable lessons along the way.
From there, Clark installed computers and technical software for multiple companies. While working on computers, Clark began to see that the structure of these businesses were inefficient and wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars. Clark restructured these businesses to be more
efficient, saving them these wasted dollars, and he quickly became recognized a turnaround expert. His unique view on business got him recruited into the field of health care, where he was immediately hired as a CFO and COO. Within his first year as CFO and COO, Clark grew the
pre-tax profit of the company from $150,000 to $1.9M.
Since then, Clark has completed more than 35 multimillion-dollar mergers and acquisitions and has designed exit strategies for clients of up to $10.5M. Clark’s clarity of vision, ability to analyze, problem-solve, and strategically plan has led to an impressive and highly-valuable track record. Clark has now structured his business skills into Management Strategic Ideas, taking his skills another step further to help businesses secure their goals and success. Combining strong communication with expert collaboration, MSI provides CFO, CEO, and COO services to clients who want to grow and improve their businesses. MSI is ready to help your business take off for a smooth and successful flight today!
Motivating small businesses to continue to succeed and improve our community are my main goals. I have been fortunate enough to run a successful restaurant in Chino and it’s been a dream come true. At the age of 20, I became one of the youngest restaurant operators in our city. With many bumps on the road, I have managed to maneuver over those bumps making Los Portales a Staple of our community. The road to success doesn’t come easy but with much love, passion, hard work dedication, and self-belief that spark that once seemed so far away, will become your everyday light. I want to see every business in our community continue to grow and every household is “Chino Proud”.
