Tran will be in charge of the office that provides legal advice to the county on multiple issues, including land use, employment and child and adult welfare, according to a statement on the county’s website.
He will be paid $285,000.
“Minh is an exceptional leader with discerning judgment and a strong legal acumen,” said board chair Jeff Hewitt in the statement. “I look forward to working with Minh to continue finding solutions for Riverside County residents.”
Tran has nearly 30 years experience in law and government, including the last five years as Napa County’s chief executive officer. He was also county counsel there, sometimes holding both titles at the same time, according to the statement.
