Moyer fills final vacancy on WETA Board of Directors

Monique MoyerSAN FRANCISCO – California Governor Gavin Newsom has appointed Monique Moyer to the San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) Board of Directors.

Ms. Moyer fills the vacancy created when Jim Wunderman was named WETA Board Chair in January 2020. Ms. Moyer’s term is effective until January 1, 2026.

“We are excited to welcome Ms. Moyer to our Board of Directors,” said Nina Rannells, WETA’s executive director. “She’s deeply experienced in waterfront issues and municipal finance, and that background will be incredibly useful for WETA going forward. On a personal level, I’m really excited to get to work with Director Moyer again in her new role.”

Ms. Moyer is a senior managing director of Global Workplace Solutions at CBRE, a global commercial real estate services firm. Prior to 2016, she worked in various roles with the City and County of San Francisco for 20 years. This included 12 years as the executive director of the Port of San Francisco, where she collaborated with WETA on a number of projects, including the Downtown San Francisco Ferry Terminal Expansion Project.

“From my tenure leading the Port of San Francisco, I know the importance of having a vigorous ferry system for the Bay Area,” Ms. Moyer said. “I look forward to working with the staff at WETA, Chair Wunderman and my fellow directors to realize our vision for water transportation to serve emergency response and economic recovery needs. I am grateful to Governor Newsom for appointing me to serve in this important position.”

The WETA Board of Directors is a five‐member body. Three members, including the chair and vice chair, are appointed by the governor. One member is appointed by the Senate Rules Committee. One member is appointed by the Assembly Speaker.

Ms. Moyer joins Chair Jim Wunderman and Directors Anthony Intintoli, Jeff DelBono and Jessica Alba on the WETA Board. Director Alba was appointed in June 2020 by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon.

WETA is a regional public transit agency tasked with developing, operating and expanding ferry service on the San Francisco Bay and with coordinating the water transit response to regional emergencies.
