PennDOT official named CEO of Pa. Turnpike
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is bringing in a top official from the state Department of Transportation to be its new chief executive.
The turnpike commission said Tuesday that Mark Compton of Manheim was approved unanimously and will start work in February.
He'll be taking the job most recently held by Roger Nutt, who resigned in October, citing health issues.
Compton's current job as deputy secretary of administration for PennDOT includes oversight of human resources, fiscal management and infrastructure and operations.
Turnpike chairman William Lieberman calls Compton "a highly qualified, highly capable individual."
