Placer County Hires CEO

Placer County’s acting CEO Jane Christenson has been promoted to the permanent role after a nationwide search.

“I want to thank all the panelists and county staff that participated in the extensive selection process,” said District 5 Supervisor and Board Chair Cindy Gustafson. “The board appreciates the wisdom and communication from so many of our constituents, elected department heads, and staff members who will be working with and for Jane. I think it is important for residents to understand the thoroughness of the process and how united we were in our support for Jane’s appointment.”

The Placer County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a two-year employment agreement with Christenson on Tuesday. Her starting salary is $272,875 per year. 

Christenson has worked for the county for almost four years. She took over as acting CEO following the June departure of Todd Leopold.
