Raymond Jack, a 15-year employee of Los Angeles World Airports, has been appointed operations manager at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Prior to the appointment, Jack had served as airfield manager at LAX since 2006, overseeing the activities of the Air Operations Center. In that position, he was responsible for all LAX airfield operations.

“Jack’s background, experience and technical aviation knowledge make him well-matched for the duties he will assume as LAX operations manager, including development of the Airport Operations Center for both daily operations and emergency coordination,” said Jeff Fitch, Los Angeles World Airports deputy executive director of operations and maintenance.

As airfield manager, Jack established and oversaw integration of the gate control assignments, airfield bussing operations, airfield permits and airfield inspections to form the Air Operations Center.

“He also played an integral role in the recent incorporation of the Airbus A380 into the LAX system,” Fitch said.

Jack has worked for Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates LAX, since 1993. He began his career as an airport operations coordinator and later held the position of chief of airfield operations before being appointed airport manager.

Prior to joining the agency, Jack held the rank of captain and served as a pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps. He later attained the rank of major in the Marine Corps Reserve.

Jack earned his Master of Arts in business from Webster University in Irvine and his Bachelor of Science in biology from the City University of New York.

He holds a commercial pilot’s license with ratings to fly single- and multi-engine airplanes and helicopters and also has instrument ratings for both types of aircraft.
