The Pima Association of Governments and the Regional Transportation Authority named Farhad Moghimi to be executive director.

Moghimi is assistant town manager in Sahuarita and he holds leadership roles in PAG and RTA committees. He was previously public-works director in Sahuarita and Marana.

The post is one of the top public-administration jobs in the Tucson area. The director oversees the region's planning efforts and the $2.1 billion RTA program.

Moghimi succeeds Gary Hayes, who was director from 2004 through 2012 before resigning for health reasons.

Hayes' base salary was $137,000. Moghimi's salary will be negotiated for approval by the PAG Regional Council next month.
