Bransen assumed the post on Friday, April 1 and replaces Will Kempton who has led the agency since February 2015.
The new CTC executive director brings 25 years of professional experience in transportation to her new role. At the CTC, Bransen previously held the position of chief deputy director as well as the chief of staff and policy advisor for the agency’s executive director. In addition, she worked for the California Department of Transportation as the director of Audits and Investigations.
Kempton will continue his advocacy on transportation issues. He has resumed his post as Executive Director of Transportation California, a group that has partnered with the League to support transportation funding and protections for that funding since the 1990s.
