Barry McComb will take over as the Thousand Oaks Cultural Affairs Director in February, which include managing the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.
McComb is currently chief executive of Glendale Arts, a non-profit organization which manages the historic Alex Theater.

McComb worked as the director of entertainment for the parent company of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
He’ll replace longtime director Tom Mitze, who is retiring.
