New chief chosen for Downtown San Diego Partnership

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — When it comes to planning and economic development city leaders look to other groups for input and guidance.

One of those group is the Downtown San Diego Partnership, which has just named a new President and CEO.

42-year-old Betsy Brennan is no stranger to San Diego. She was once chief of staff to former San Diego State University President Stephen Weber and served as chief of staff to then San Diego City Council President Scott Peters.

As the incoming president of the Downtown San Diego Partnership, Brennan will lead 400 business members and 11,000 property owners in the downtown area.

The non-profit organization functions as the voice for a wide swath of interests, who want to build and promote a more vital downtown area.

KUSI’s Sasha Foo talked with the new CEO about her leadership style and what she envisions for the future of the city’s downtown area.
