Leucadia 101 Mainstreet Association has a new Board of Directors president, the Encinitas area business group recently announced.

Brad Hanson began serving in the position after a unanimous vote of the board on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Former President Kevin Doyle remains as a board member.

“I am so thrilled to serve as president of the Leucadia 101 Mainstreet Association,” Hanson said in a news release. “Following in the footsteps of Kevin Doyle and continuing the legacy of the fine people, past and present, that have made this association as great as it is today is an immense honor.”

Hanson, a retired certified public accountant who has lived in Leucadia for nearly 30 years, is a member of the Encinitas Parks and Recreation Commission.

“We are grateful to have Brad serve as our board president,” Leucadia 101 Mainstreet board Vice President Nikki Harth said in the association’s news release. “He’s fairly new on our board, but has been a long time supporter of and volunteer of Leucadia 101 Mainstreet. Having him step up with great enthusiasm to take charge and lead will be great for our organization. His energy, knowledge and commitment to our community shines through. He’s a great asset to our team.”

Hanson is an active member of several local nonprofits. Among them, he serves as a director and president of the Patrons of Encinitas Parks and a director of the Leucadia Arts and Cultural Foundation.

The Leucadia 101 Mainstreet Association board president takes on a variety of roles, according to the group’s announcement. Hanson will be a liaison between Executive Director Brittany Corrales and the Board of Directors, oversee the implementation of the group’s annual plan, and help manage the Leucadia 101 Farmers Market.
