Long Beach City Manager Patrick West named Claudia Lewis as the interim Long Beach Airport (LGB) Director, effective Thursday, Jan. 31, officials announced. The City is conducting a national recruitment for the next airport director.

“Claudia already oversees a great deal at the airport and will do a fantastic job as interim director,” West said. “Throughout the years, she has contributed to the successes of several City departments and has been integral to the many positive changes we have seen at the airport over the last decade.”

Lewis has worked at LGB since 2008. Her recent role as the manager of Finance and Administration has her overseeing public affairs, government relations, finance, accounting, revenue development, audit, risk management and personnel/human resources for LGB, the City wrote.

Lewis has also been with the City of Long Beach for more than 20 years and has held positions in several departments, including Public Works, Water, Civil Service, Police and the Port of Long Beach. She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in business administration. Lewis is also an accredited member of the American Association of Airport Executives.

The City clarified that Lewis will not be a candidate for the airport-director position.

Last December, the City announced that Jess Romo, previous LGB director, would be retiring. His last day with the City was Jan. 31.
