R. Shane Beard


I'm a small business owner who believes that we are the 'backbone' of our economy. I am active in the City of San Diego and at San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce. I serve on the Mayor's Small Business Advisory Board and volunteer as an Ambassador, past Business Alliance Group leader, current chair of the Small Business Roundtable and member of the Public Policy Committee. I've owned small businesses for over 20 years and have served on many not-for-profit boards and chamber boards over my career. I am a champion for a small business owner and their big business ideas!
