The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), which oversees Metrolink operations in Orange County, Calif., has named Ken Phipps deputy chief executive officer.
In his new position, effective this week, Phipps will help lead OCTA on local, state and national issues related to transportation programs and policies, as well as assist Chief Executive Officer Darrell Johnson in coordinating business, operations and management across the agency's seven divisions, OCTA officials said in a press release.
Currently, Phipps is OCTA's executive director of finance and administration, a position he's held since 2009.
"Ken has a broad range of experience and financial expertise in the transportation industry, as well as a comprehensive knowledge of OCTA's programs, projects and services," said Johnson. "He skillfully helped guide our agency through challenging economic times and I am very confident in his ability to serve the people of Orange County in his new role."
