Hahn gets a job *

Former Mayor Jim Hahn will try to make it rain as managing director for Chadwick, Saylor & Co., the Brentwood real estate and investment firm run by Coliseum Commission president Bill Chadwick. The L.A. Business Journal's Howard Fine reports that Hahn joined the firm after leaving office July 1 (the former mayor declined to comment for the story.) Fine gives the background:

Chadwick has been a fixture on the L.A. investment and sports scene. In 1999, he was then-Gov. Gray Davis’ hand-picked negotiator with National Football League owners to try to bring the NFL back to Los Angeles. After two months of futile negotiations, he resigned.

Davis then named Chadwick to the board of the California Science Center and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission; he is now president of the Coliseum Commission.

During the recent mayoral campaign, Chadwick supported Hahn, giving at least $5,000 to his primary and general election campaigns. He also hosted a fundraiser for Hahn.

Chadwick’s wife, Cheryl, just finished serving as chair of the Getty House Foundation, which oversees the mayor’s official residence in Hancock Park.

Oddly, the Chadwick Saylor website isn't exactly crowing about Hahn joining the firm. In fact, he's not mentioned that I could find.
