Oakland Leaders Announced

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Oakland recently announced several leadership moves this month.

The Board of Port Commissioners selected Port Attorney Danny Wan as Acting Executive Director shortly after Executive Director Chris Lytle announced his retirement on July 19.

Wan, who has been port attorney since 2012, was deputy port attorney from 2004 to 2008 and formerly served on the Oakland City Council.

Assistant Port Attorney Michele Heffes will take over as Acting Port Attorney.

The board also chose Cestra “Ces” Butner to serve a third term on the board as president, re-elected Commissioner Andreas Cluver as First Vice President and selected first-year Commissioner Barbara Leslie as Second Vice President.
