New Oakland Commissioner

By Karen Robes Meeks

Architect and civic leader Yui Hay Lee is the Port of Oakland’s newest member of the Board of Port Commissioners.

The president and CEO of Oakland-based YHLA Architects was sworn into the seven-member board Thursday, replacing Alan Yee, who served eight years before his board term expired.

“We’re delighted to welcome Yui Hay Lee to our Board,” said President Ces Butner. “He brings a strong business background, exceptional planning and development experience and a commitment to the community.” Lee is well known in the community, previously serving on the Oakland/Alameda County Coliseum Authority, the Oakland Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board and the Oakland Planning Commission.

“I’m honored to join the Port Commission during these exciting times,” said Lee. “Port business continues to grow and provide opportunities that benefit the entire region.”
