Jarrett Barrios, the chief executive officer of the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts who oversaw relief efforts in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, will step down March 3 to take over the outfit’s Los Angeles region, the aid organization announced Tuesday.
Barrios took the helm of the Eastern Massachusetts division in 2011 after serving for a decade in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and Senate. In a statement Tuesday, the American Red Cross of Massachusetts Board of Directors credited Barrios with expanding the organization and guiding it through two of the state’s most serious disasters since the Blizzard of 1978—the Marathon bombings and February 2013 blizzard.
