New East Los Angeles College President Marvin Martinez spent part of his first day on the job Monday meeting faculty, staff and students. The Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees, after an extensive search, voted Jan. 31 to appoint Martinez the eighth President of the 68-year-old college. Martinez was serving as President of Los Angeles Harbor College at the time of the appointment. His official first day of service at ELAC was July 1. Martinez served previously as Vice Chancellor for Economic and Workforce Development for the LACCD. His resume includes administrative positions at Santa Monica and Cerritos colleges. Martinez succeeds Ernest Moreno, who resigned in 2011 after serving as head of the college for 18 years, and who was elected to the Board of Trustees in March.
