Executive-in-Residence

Oscar Gonzalez, Co-President of Northgate Gonzalez Market, named 2020 USC FIEP Executive-in-Residence

The USC Marshall School of Business Food Industry Executive Program (FIEP) has named Oscar Gonzalez, Co-President at Northgate Gonzalez Market, as Executive-in-Residence for FIEP 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 has also 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.  In 2018 Oscar and his family received the Robert B Wegman Award and The Stars & Stripes Good Scout Award in 2013.  In 2020, Oscar was named Executive of the Year for the USC Food Industry Management Program. 

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 it has helped them develop a heightened level of self-confidence and thirst for learning, which has positively shaped all aspects of their lives” says Gonzalez.

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.
