Los Angeles, CA — Jeremy Oberstein has taken the helm of S360’s Los Angeles office. He most recently served as Chief of Staff to Los Angeles Controller Ron Galperin. He is responsible for ensuring the success of clients in the LA region by guiding the S360 team and offering strategic insights to problem solve and implement solutions.

He previously served as Controller Galperin’s Deputy Chief of Staff and Director of Communications.
Prior to his City Controller service, Oberstein directed efforts for all government relations and external policies for the Los Angeles Fire Department. His experience also includes spearheading communications for L.A. City Councilmember and then-Assembly Majority Leader Paul Krekorian.
