Port of Oakland selects Cluver as President for the second time

The Port of Oakland’s governing Board of Port Commissioners unanimously selected for the second time Andreas Cluver as President. The seven-member Oakland Board of Port Commissioners unanimously selected the East Bay labor leader at a special meeting last week.

Cluver will begin his second one-year term next month, after first gaining the presidency in July 2020.

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

During his first term as President, he provided policy guidance as the port began its recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to the East Bay labor leader, Commissioner Barbara Leslie will remain as First Vice President and Commissioner Yui Hay Lee will remain as Second Vice President for a second term.
