Captain Kip Louttit was appointed as the Executive Director of the Marine Exchange of Southern California in January 2013.  A graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy, he served in the United States Coast Guard (USCG) for 30 years prior to retiring with the rank of Captain.  Captain Louttit’s experience includes 10 years at sea in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the Bering, Mediterranean, and Caribbean Seas.  He had six years in command of three different Coast Guard cutters and two years as commanding officer of USCG Integrated Support Command in San Pedro.  Following retirement from the Coast Guard, Captain Louttit worked for two consulting firms on Coast Guard and Pentagon work.


Captain Louttit leads a staff of 20 civilians and a Coast Guard detail of six active duty Operations Specialists with an annual budget of $3.1 million.  The Marine Exchange of Southern California, a non-profit organization first established in 1923, is unique among the nation’s Vessel Traffic Services in having a public/private partnership with the Coast Guard.  It has evolved into one of the world’s foremost organizations of its kind and uses state-of-the-market electronic and computer technology to provide vessel traffic management and maritime information services for the maritime community within the Los Angeles and Long Beach harbor areas and the Southern California region.  The Marine Exchange continuously works to promote a safe, secure, efficient, reliable, and environmentally sound maritime transportation system.


Captain Louttit was a Sloan Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and holds master’s degrees from MIT and Golden Gate University.  He is an avid and active sailor with extensive experience in offshore races.  He has been a speaker at the U.S. Sailing Safety at Sea Seminar in Annapolis since 2008 and actively crews in racing and cruising sailboats offshore as navigator and bowman.  He and his family live in Rancho Palos Verdes where he serves in the Coast Guard Auxiliary and as an Assistant Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America, where he enjoys leading Scouts on outdoor and volunteer community service activities.

Redondo Beach Housing Crisis Update

Our diverse community is friendly and happy. When you move to Redondo you are part of a community that values tradition, safety and education. We are proud of our area and expect it to be clean and well maintained. Our little corner of paradise is home to Redondo’s largest employer, Northrup Grumman. Our schools are the envy of the South Bay. Our popular hotels on Marine Avenue helped save Redondo Beach’s budget when sales tax dipped. Plus, we are freeway close to everything the LA area has to offer. The Metro Green Line stops at Marine & Redondo Avenue and will be expanding to the Galleria by 2028.

We work hard, we play fair and we are pleased to live here.
