Adding to the non-profit organization’s experienced and influential membership dedicated to serving San Diego’s business community.

San Diego, CA, March 21, 2018 --( The Chairmen’s RoundTable (CRT), a San Diego non-profit organization that provides pro-bono mentoring to CEOs of private businesses in the Greater San Diego area, announced today that four new members have joined CRT: Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., Littler Mendelson, Raindrop Branding & Advertising, and The MarketBuilding Team.

These four companies have joined as sponsors and supporters of the CRT and play a very important role in the carrying out the mission of the organization. “We need business leaders like these to help us reach out to the local business community and identify companies that can benefit from our mentorship process,” said Paul Thiel, Chairman of the CRT. “They share our belief that the cumulative effect of mentoring one company at a time has had a positive impact on San Diego's regional economy and have committed to assisting us in our continued outreach.”

Mintz Levin provides the meeting space for our monthly group mentorship sessions. The law firm serves clients of all sizes and at all stages of growth and immerse themselves in their clients’ industries. They represent Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurs, emerging growth and established companies, government agencies, and nonprofits. Mintz Levin brings attorneys from complementary practices and geographies to address the rapidly changing legal and regulatory environment of many industries.

With more than 1,300 attorneys across 75 offices, Littler Mendelson is the world's largest law firm exclusively devoted to representing companies in employment, employee benefit, executive compensation, and labor law matters. Littler offers personalized service for management of companies of all sizes, from local tech start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. Littler is consistently ranked as one of the most diverse and welcoming law firms in the world. They explained their reason to get involved: "The Chairmen's RoundTable offers the rare combination of exposure to current leaders in the business community and, at the same time, an opportunity to provide insight for young entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and non-profit professionals.”

Raindrop Branding & Advertising agreed: “We love everything CRT stands for. We're proud to serve the mentors and their clients. It is a special group of people supporting entrepreneurship in San Diego and helping leaders to thrive.” Raindrop Branding & Advertising is a relationship building agency. Why relationship?

The MarketBuilding Team is a collaborative of marketing and communications strategists of every discipline that focus on providing street smart ideas, nuts & bolts tactics, and personalized and attentive service. Says Chief Strategist Rob Weinberg; “From start-ups to multinational corporations, we’ve spent the past 21 years delivering unique marketing solutions and profitable results for every type of business and non-profit imaginable. Our team is known for providing comprehensive corporate communications solutions, coaxing the best results from every message, every type of traditional and digital communications vehicle, and every client we represent. We’re delighted to be able to bring our community of brand messaging problem-solvers to work to help better San Diego’s business community.”
