WILLIE BROWN

GUEST SPEAKER

Two-term mayor of San Francisco, renowned speaker of the California  Assembly, and widely regarded as the most influential African American politician of the late twentieth century, Willie L. Brown, Jr. has been at the center of California politics, government and civic life for four decades. 

 

Throughout his time in public service he has championed  civil rights, education reform, tax policy, economic development, health care, international trade, domestic partnerships and affirmative action.

Growing up in my father's grocery stores in the Mission, I gained a good foundation in customer service, small business and community.  

 

After graduating from UC Berkeley with an architecture degree, I co-founded a design/ furniture store in the Tenderloin with a $2k investments. This year, Zinc Details is celebrating its 27th anniversary!  

 

I'm proud of the community of customers and designers that we've fostered and I've learned many valuable lessons in running and sustaining a small business for so long.  

 

In addition to running my business, I'm also  the executive director of the Fillmore Merchants Association. During my time, we've been able to unify upper and lower Fillmore Street into a cohesive, dynamic merchant group.  I've enjoyed sharing and collaborating with the other merchants to make the FMA a successful organization.
