Pla is President, CEO and Founder of Cordoba Corporation, a statewide full-service ENR Top 50 Program Management Firm and Top 100 Construction Management-for-Fee Firm specializing in the delivery of infrastructure projects in transportation, education, water and energy sectors.

Pla’s professional achievements have been recognized by the Hispanic Business Magazine, where he was named as one of the 100 Most Influential Latinos in the nation.  He is a co-founder of the Latino Alumni Association at the University of Southern California (USC) and a co-founder and the current president of the City Club, a business club in Los Angeles that embraces and reflects the diversity of the city.

Pla.   “Now more than ever, Plaza’s community-based programs and family-centered services are critical to educating and empowering diverse communities.  It is vital that the private sector join me in supporting these important programs.”
