New Oakland IT Director

By Karen Robes Meeks

UC Berkeley systems expert Kevin Fong is the Port of Oakland’s new IT Director.

The 30-year tech veteran in systems management replaces Acting IT Director Kyle Mobley, who will go back to his position as Aviation Information Technology Manager at Oakland International Airport.

Fong served as IT Director for University Development and Alumni Relations at UC Berkeley, where he worked for 13 years.

“Kevin’s expertise covers the gamut from systems infrastructure development to cloud computing,” said Port of Oakland Acting Executive Director Danny Wan. “That background, coupled with his public-sector experience at a great university, makes him a good fit for the Port."
