Gonzalez Named Executive In Residence For USC Program

Oscar Gonzalez

The USC Marshall School of Business Food Industry Executive Program has named Oscar Gonzalez, co-president at Northgate Gonzalez Market, as executive-in-residence for 2021-22.

Gonzalez is a graduate of the Pepperdine University Executive MBA program. He serves on the boards of the Food Marketing Institute, the Western Association of Food Chains and Homeboy Industries. He also has served on the board of Unified Grocers, as well as being on the Coca Cola Retailing Council. In addition, Gonzalez is active in the Young Presidents Organization.

He and his family received the Robert B Wegman Award in 2018 and The Stars & Stripes Good Scout Award in 2013. In 2020, Gonzalez was named Executive of the Year for the USC Food Industry Management Program.

“Each year we consider executives who are passionate about education and work as partners with the team at USC and the WAFC to find a way for every employee to have a chance at getting an education,” said Cynthia McCloud, director food industry programs at USC. “Oscar Gonzalez and his family have supported many education programs for their associates and have been instrumental in giving their future leaders the opportunity to attend programs at USC. Oscar is passionate about life-long learning and helping others grow both their knowledge and their experience to give back to the food industry. We look forward to having him share his career story and share his leadership principles with our class in both the fall and the spring sessions.”

“I have seen first-hand the transformational impact that the USC FIEP program has had on our many associates who have graduated from the program. Not only has the program produced a well-rounded growth in their overall business knowledge, but also it has helped them develop a heightened level of self-confidence and thirst for learning, which has positively shaped all aspects of their lives,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez lives in Southern California with his wife Silvia and four children – Karla Teresa, Clarissa, Oscar Miguel and Victoria Nicole. His personal life revolves around family activities associated with his immediate and large extended family – including 12 siblings and 50 nephews and nieces.

The fall session of the FIEP will be held Sept. 20-23 in Los Angeles. The spring session will be held March 14-17, 2022. Visit marshall.usc.edu/FIEP for more detailed information and course schedule.
