The Central Ohio Transit Authority's board today named 47-year-old Joanna Pinkerton as the agency's new CEO.
Pinkerton takes over for Curtis Stitt, who retired last September. Pinkerton is Chief Operating Officer of the state's Transportation Research Center in East Liberty. Pinkerton has worked for the Ohio Department of Transportation, Ohio State University and the Union County Engineer's office. Board members say mobility and technology will be her focus at COTA.
