Alex Nguyen has been appointed as the new City Manager in Oxnard
AGQ Labs CEO, Tenesor Pena, and Laboratory Director, Jesse Calvillo, attended the “meet and greet” event hosted by the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce on last July 12th.
For the past six months, the top position at City Hall has been held by two interim city managers since Greg Nyhoff left the position. Nguyen comes from the city of Riverside, where he served as assistant city manager for the past three years overseeing the departments of police, fire, library, museum, parks and community services.
Alex Nguyen graduated from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and worked in the cities of Oakland and Alameda before heading to Riverside. What enticed him about Oxnard is the list of challenges both complicated and exciting. He understands that downtown has a lot of potential and there is a great need for revitalization. There is also great potential at Ormond Beach to restore and preserve the natural sanctuary. “Those are projects anyone who loves municipal government would be drooling over,” Nguyen said.
We wish Nguyen all the best at this challenging position.
