Michael Molina was appointed to the position of Deputy Executive Director of External Affairs for Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) in March 2010.
Following seven years of service as chief of staff to Los Angeles 15th District Councilmember Janice Hahn, Molina joined LAWA in 2008 as Senior Director of Government Affairs. In that position, he was responsible for coordinating all of LAWA’s legislative activities and serving as liaison to local, state and federally elected officials.
“He successfully steered LAWA through the legislative process here in the City as well as in Sacramento and Washington, DC,” LAWA Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey said.
Later in 2008, Molina duties were expanded and his position title was changed to Senior Director of External Affairs to reflect those new responsibilities, which included managing the activities of LAWA’s Government Affairs, Public Relations, Community Relations, Air Service Marketing and Business and Job Resources divisions.
Lindsey said Molina’s responsibilities are being expanded to include a newly structured customer service function. “These new responsibilities put him at the center of LAWA’s critical engagement with communities, agencies and government, along with its delivery of passenger service.”
Molina is a graduate of California State University, Dominguez Hills.
