Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed the chief of an Oakland water philanthropy to be the following secretary of the California Pure Assets Company.
Wade Crowfoot will lead the company that oversees state parks, the Division of Water Assets and the Division of Fish and Wildlife, amongst different places of work, Newsom introduced Friday.
Crowfoot, 45, was CEO of the Water Basis, a company with places of work in Sacramento, Oakland and Los Angeles that helps fund efforts to enhance water administration, from 2016 to 2018. Earlier than that, Crowfoot labored as a deputy cupboard secretary and senior adviser to Gov. Jerry Brown, and as a senior environmental adviser to Newsom when he was mayor of San Francisco.
Newsom named three different Oakland residents to education-focused positions within the governor’s workplace on Friday.
Legal professional Ben Chida, 33, was appointed senior coverage adviser for “Cradle to Profession” — a reference to Newsom’s broad training agenda. Early childhood training coverage guide Giannina Pérez, 47, and Lande Ajose, the 52-year-old chairwoman of the state’s monetary assist fee, had been named senior coverage advisers for early childhood and better training, respectively.
Former Brown adviser Alice Busching Reynolds, 50, of San Francisco, was named a senior adviser to Newsom for vitality.
