Port of Oakland Board President Gets Second Term

Port of Oakland Board President Andreas Cluver is remaining the head of the seven-member board.

In a special meeting earlier this month, port commissioners unanimously chose Cluver for a second consecutive one-year term. Cluver, the Secretary-Treasurer of the Building & Construction Trades Council of Alameda County, joined the board in February 2016. Commissioners are nominated by the mayor of Oakland and appointed by the Oakland City Council.

Under his leadership, Cluver guided the port as it started to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, from the reopening of domestic air service at Oakland International Airport to record cargo movement at the seaport.

“I’m gratified to have the support of my colleagues for another year as president,” Cluver said. “We’ve got lots of unfinished business and I’m fortunate to be working with the Board and a talented Port of Oakland staff.”

Meanwhile, Port Commissioner Barbara Leslie will remain first vice president and Commissioner Yui Hay Lee as second vice president. They will also serve second one-year terms in those roles.
