Pasadena Convention Center chief on leave pending inquiry

The Pasadena Center Operating Co. Board of Directors has placed Chief Executive Officer Michael Ross on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of a personnel inquiry, the agency announced in a statement on Thursday.

No details about the investigation were released.

The PCOC is city-owned nonprofit that manages the Pasadena Civic Auditorium and Pasadena Conference Center as well as the city’s ice skating rink and the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Ross joined the PCOC in 2006 and oversaw the completion of a $150-million renovation and expansion of the Pasadena Conference Center, according to the agency’s website. Before joining the PCOC, Ross oversaw a public-private partnership operating convention and performing arts facilities in San Jose.

Members of the PCOC board are appointed by the Pasadena City Council.
