The PCTPA Board of Directors unanimously selected Mike Luken to succeed Celia McAdam as the first new Executive Director in more than 20 years.

Mike Luken comes to PCTPA with more than 20 years of experience in local government. Most recently, Mike served as the Deputy Director of the Yolo County Transportation District.
“I’m excited about this terrific opportunity to serve in the Placer region where I live. Transportation is such an integral part of our community’s quality of life, and I look forward to continuing to deliver these projects to our community” says Mike. Mike has also worked in transportation planning and economic development for the Cities of West Sacramento and Sacramento, Yolo County, and as the Director of the Port of West Sacramento.

PCTPA is focused on improving the regional transportation network in Placer County.
