A City at Work: Building a More Business-Friendly Los Angeles



Job creation has been one of Mayor Garcetti’s top Back-to Basics priorities. In an effort to best serve Los Angeles he assembled a top-notch team of economic development leaders to work on his team. This event highlighted those individuals as well as the steps the Garcetti Administration has taken to improve processes for a business-friendly city. 

The Mayor invited Gene Seroka, Executive Director of the Port of Los Angeles; Deborah Flint, Executive Director of Los Angeles World Airports; and Raymond Chan, then General Manager of the Department of Building and Safety (who also served as the Deputy Mayor of Economic Development) to take questions from business leaders and community members regarding the services they provide and the economic future of Los Angeles.
