Ron Busby, Sr.
U.S. Black Chamber, Inc.
WORKING GROUP SESSION LEADER, The Power of Small Business and Credit
Ron Busby, Sr. is a first class leader for our times, and the US Black Chamber is truly fortunate to have him at their helm. I was honored to speak at their recent leadership meeting of chamber leaders in Washington, D.C. Likewise, we are honored to have him with us in Atlanta.
Ron Busby, Sr., is not only the leader of the Nation’s new premier non-profit organization for Black Business owners; he also is a successful business owner himself. He comes with a background in the small business arena, as he has started, grew, and has been recognized as one of the country’s best CEOs. He grew his first business, USA SuperClean, from $150,000 annual revenue to over $15 million. Ron has received countless awards, from the Western Region SBA Small Business Person of the Year in 1996, to the Greater Phoenix Chamber Small Business Person of the Year in 2006, and the Maricopa County Small Business of the Year in 2007 to name a few.
Trained by some of the country’s leading executives, Ron developed many of his skills at some of the country’s major corporations in various senior management positions such as Exxon, Xerox, IBM, and Coca Cola USA. While in corporate America he received national recognition as National Sales Person of the Year.
A native of Oakland, California by way of Houston, Texas, Ron has led and served on many boards and committees for organizations such as the XL II Super Bowl Host Committee Co- Chair, Arizona Governor’s African American Leadership Council, The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, President of the 100 Black Men (Bay Area Chapter), the Urban League, and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
As a graduate with honors from both Florida A&M University, and Clark Atlanta University Ron is a major advocate and promoter of the imperativeness of higher education. As past Chairman & President of the Greater Phoenix Black Chamber of Commerce, working towards the success of the national Black business agenda remains a priority today.
