LOS ANGELES — The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco announced Jan. 23 that it has appointed Gina Marie Lindsey, executive director of Los Angeles World Airports, to the board of its Los Angeles branch.
Her two-year term began on Jan. 1.
Established in 1914, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco is subject to the general oversight and supervision of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in Washington, D.C. The San Francisco FRB is governed by a nine-member board of directors. Each of its four branches, in Los Angeles, Portland, Salt Lake City and Seattle, has a separate seven-member branch board.
The board of directors provides the region's economic perspective to the FRB's Board of Directors in San Francisco.
Lindsey, who was appointed LAWA executive director in 2007, has over two decades experience managing airports. At LAWA, she oversees three airports: Los Angeles International Airport, Van Nuys Airport and Ontario International Airport.
LAX is mid-way through a $7 billion capital improvement project that includes modernization of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, which opened in September 2013.
Prior to LAWA, Lindsey worked as executive vice president of McBee Strategic Consulting, LLC, a government relations and aviation consulting firm in Washington, D.C. Before joining McBee, she worked as managing director of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which serves more than 33 million passengers a day.
"I'm proud that Executive Director Lindsey has earned this prestigious appointment and will represent the City of Los Angeles as part of the Federal Reserve system," Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement.
