Peter Naghavi Announces His Retirement
Peter Naghavi, Costa Mesa's Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Economic and Development Director, today announced his intention to retire from his lifetime of public service as of December 4, 2012.
A LONG, ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER
Peter began his career in Costa Mesa in 1990 as the city's Transportation Manager, where he served the community for seventeen years. He then was promoted to Director of Public Services, Interim Chief Executive Officer, Director of Economic Development and eventually to his current position.
THE CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL
Those who have worked with Peter over more than two decades in Costa Mesa have found him to be a thorough professional, dedicated to finding creative solutions to problems and to developing and motivating staff members to achieve the best results.
OUTSTANDING, DEDICATED PUBLIC SERVANT
Those of us within the community who have had the opportunity to interact with Peter have found him to be an outstanding public servant, always eager to understand the issues facing us and prompt to respond with solutions.
Peter notified the City Staff with the letter below. He also sent one to his friends within the community that contained similar sentiments.
WHATEVER HIS FUTURE HOLDS...
His friends - I include myself in that group - wish him the best in the future. He's spoken of European travel, consulting and just sleeping in past 6 a.m. for a change.
GOOD-BYE AND GOOD LUCK
Good luck, Peter. Your wisdom, dedication and friendship will be missed.
