First résumé review: Friday, November 26, 2021.

This is an exceptional opportunity to lead the finance team of this multi-jurisdictional agency leading the way to a more diverse, affordable, sustainable, and economically vibrant Bay Area.

Created by the California Legislature in 1970 (California Government Code § 66500 et seq.), the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC or the Commission) is the transportation planning, coordinating, and financing agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. It functions as both the regional transportation planning agency – a state designation – and, for federal purposes, as the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).

The ideal candidate possesses knowledge and experience specific to the operation of a large public sector agency, including advising a multi-member governing body, and will have the ability to establish an effective working relationship with a diverse group of customers. Strong familiarity with the delivery of significant public projects, general government accounting, and meaningful process improvement is paramount. Collaborative servant leaders who see finance as an integral cog in the overall operation of the organization and have a history of breaking down siloes will find this role rewarding. The Chief Financial Officer is a key member of the executive team and plays a significant role in policymaking and leadership of the organization. Exceptional communication skills – both written and verbal – are essential to the CFO’s success in order to present technical information in an easily understood manner to any type of audience. Creative problem-solvers who are resourceful in ascertaining information quickly and accurately, and adept at finding a path through difficult issues will thrive in this environment.
