The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) are seeking a Deputy Executive Director of Housing and Energy. This executive-level position is key to theoverall success of both organizations. MTC is the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) and regional transportation planning agency (RTPA) for the San Francisco Bay Area. The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) is the council of governments (COG) for the Bay Area. The Deputy Executive Director is a newly created position and oversees two direct reports, a staff of approximately 20, and an approximate annual budget of $120 million. Both programs are poised for significant growth in the coming years. This pivotal role requires innovative strategies to navigate the intersecting realms of housing and energy, ensuring that programs like Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA), the state’s first regional housing finance agency, and Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN), the state’s first regional energy network, lead the way in tackling these critical issues. The ideal candidate will have experience in sustainability, affordable housing, energy, public financing, or community development. Join us now to play a pivotal role in strategizing the future of housing and energy in the dynamic Bay Area. Apply today to make your mark and shape the region's future!


The ideal candidate will be a creative, innovative, organized, and diplomatic leader. They will have excellent problem-solving skills, be adept at building relationships and trust, and use drive and energy to get things done. The ideal candidate must possess a strong understanding of complex funding sources such as state and federal grant awards and resilience funding, California’s climate goals, housing finance and policy, and the unique barriers to access in the Bay Area and beyond. Familiarity with regional housing and energy partners is highly desired for success in this role. The ideal candidate will discuss issues facing the Bay Area through a lens of social justice, equity, inclusivity, environmental sustainability, and innovation. Prior experience in leading housing solutions, sustainability programs, energy efficiency, financing, or community development efforts in the public sector or in a similarly complex environment is desired for success in this role.
