Lunch with a Leader: Bill Fujioka
Conversations about governance, policy, and leadership

Lunch with a Leader provides students with the opportunity to hear ideas from local, state, and national leaders as well as share their ideas and gain inspiration for effective governance in an enjoyable, informal setting.

Bill Fujioka is a public administrator with 34 years of experience in local government. He served as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the County of Los Angeles from 2007 to December 2014, implementing a new governance structure whereby the CEO exercised executive authority over most County departments and operations.

As CEO he was responsible for managing the largest county in the nation (over 10 million residents), with a budget of approximately $23 billion and over 100,000 employees and was responsible for countywide policy and program leadership -- from health and social services to public safety, community and municipal services to recreation, culture and the arts.
