Los Angeles, CA (January 21, 2019) – The Los Angeles Business Journal has named, Cathy Orquiola, vice
president and district manager, and Priscilla Chavez, manager, Diversity & Inclusion

PCL’s community outreach, workforce development, and government and labor
relations efforts. As a Master Compliance Administrator, Priscilla is
