Beverly Hills Promotes Its Assistant City Manager

George Chavez has been walking the halls of Beverly Hills’ city government for 30 years and, in three short months, he’ll take the reins as City Manager.

Chavez was recently selected to replace outgoing top administrator Mahdi Aluzri. Aluzri is retiring after 30 years in public administration, including the past four spent as manager of the affluent L.A. County city.

Chavez began his career as a Beverly Hills building inspector in 1988. He went on to become Assistant Director of Community Development, Director of Public Works, and eventually Assistant City Manager in 2016. A city press release notes he is also a recipient of the City’s Fred C. Cunningham Award for Distinguished Service.

“When I began my career in Beverly Hills more than 30 years ago, I never imagined this day would come,” Chavez recalled. “Every day, my work is based on the foundation of providing the highest level of service to this community. For a city that has given so much to me and my family, I am humbled to be asked to continue to serve.”
