Central City Association (CCA), a leading advocacy organization that aims to increase investment and enhance the vibrancy of downtown Los Angeles, recognized Hudson Pacific Properties’ CEO Victor Coleman as a Treasure of Los Angeles in May.
"It's truly an honor to be named a Treasure of Los Angeles by Central City Association. I've called the city home for more than 30 years, built two successful companies, and cultivated relationships with some of the brightest minds across industries, said Coleman. It's extremely rewarding to witness, and to contribute to, Los Angeles' evolution as a city of the future."
Treasures of Los Angeles is CCA's signature event, which celebrates the diversity, strength and excellence of the city. In its 25th year, the annual luncheon also honored Wen Zhou, CEO & Co-Founder, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Suzanne Goin, Chef & Restaurateur, The Lucques Group, and L.A. Police Department Central Area. The event brought more than 1,000 business, political and civic leaders together at JW Marriott L.A. Live.
Prior to the award presentations, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti delivered a rousing speech addressing solutions to homelessness and education, as well as recognizing the honorees’ transformative contributions to Los Angeles.
Since its founding in 1924, CCA has collaborated with stakeholders to form strong partnerships and coalitions to enhance the downtown community. CCA represents the interests of 400 businesses, trade associations and nonprofits from a broad range of industries that collectively employ more than 350,000 people in the county. Hudson Pacific’s Chris Pearson, Vice President, Development Planning, serves on CCA’s Economic Development & Livability Policy Committee.
