Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

Thanksgiving Luncheon | November 14, 2022

On Monday, November 14th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their annual Thanksgiving hosted by TGIS. 

TGIS Catering has been a member of the Execs since 1994 and originally began with Sofia Riley, the founder and George's sister. Their dad came to the United States in 1951 and was in the food business then too. George grew up in kitchens but when attending college at USC decided to study accounting. He was then in the entertainment industry for years until Sofia asked him to come work and with her. They have been going strong ever since and as everyone can agree that their food gets more delicious and creative every year. 

George treated the Execs to a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. The entire meal of turkey, ham, veggies, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin pie was delicious.

George also talked about the commitment to the quality of his food, ordering 22lb turkeys with no byproducts as well as locally fresh produce. 

TGIS also offers Kosher and plant based options. The Kosher meals are prepared in a separate kitchen, only a Rabbi has keys to, and separate serving dishes from the ones he uses for other events. The plant based options are new for TGIS but has already a hit with the entertainment industry.

When looking for someone to cater for the holidays, look no further then T.G.I.S. The customer service is wonderful and they will work with you to create an amazing menu that will fulfill you and your guest expectations.
