California Gov. Gavin Newsom has appointed Monique Moyer to the Board of Directors of the San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA), which operates the San Francisco Bay Ferry.
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.
The appointment fills a vacancy created when Jim Wunderman was named WETA Board Chair in January 2020. Moyer’s term is effective until January 1, 2026.
“We are excited to welcome Vice Chair 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 Vice Chair Moyer again in her new role.”
“From my tenure leading the Port of San Francisco, I know the importance of having a vigorous ferry system for the Bay Area,” 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 Gov. Newsom for appointing me to serve in this important position.”
