Senior Staff

Your Port. Your Leadership.

Talk to us.

Meet the Port’s senior staff members who oversee our aviation, commercial real estate, and maritime divisions as well as key support divisions like engineering and communications. We have included a photo, bio, and  brief description of job responsibilities for each member of the senior management team. Throughout the year, our executive and senior leaders speak at public events and meetings. They report on the latest Port activities and projects, and respond to questions from the public.

If you would like to contact a senior manager, please call Cheryl Ho, Secretary to the Executive Director, at (510) 627-1541 or e-mail [email protected].
