Navy veteran appointed general services director in Santa Barbara County

Kirk Lagerquist, a retired US Navy Civil Engineer Corps veteran, has been appointed as the new general services director for Santa Barbara County, replacing Janette Pell. 

Lagerquist has 27 years of experience in executive leadership, public project, and program management. During his career, he served as the military equivalent of a public works director at large and small Navy installations, including Naval Station Pearl Harbor, where he led 41 military personnel and 575 civilians in the execution of facilities maintenance, repair, and construction. 

He currently resides in Ventura County, where he spent the last three years of his career working as the second-in-command for Naval Base Ventura County, Point Mugu. 

In his new role, Lagerquist will oversee the General Services Department, which includes 98 employees and is divided into three divisions: administration, finance, and procurement; real property and fleet, and capital and facilities maintenance. Source: Santa Barbara News-Press
