Angel's owner Arte Moreno
A highlight of my career was watching a baseball game with Arte Moreno (at least part of the game). He is one of the nicest gentlemen I've ever met. Gracious. Soft spoken. And very, very business savvy. I wrote the cover story for OC METRO which featured a "power profile" of Moreno.
The biggest take-away from our meeting: I asked the former billboard tycoon how he grew his media company into a billion-dollar enterprise.
"Consolidate and acquire," Moreno told me. His philosophy of streamlining operations, shedding excess (the consolidate part) and then acquiring and growing made so much sense.
