Name: Goldbeck, Steven
Current Position: Acting Executive Director

Having been with the Bay Conservation and Development Commission since graduating from college in the ‘80s, Steven Goldbeck was the natural choice to fill in as acting executive director when Will Travis retired in December 2011.  

Goldbeck graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz in 1984 with a bachelor of arts degree in environmental planning and public policy. He went to work for the commission the next year, where he specialized in policy and management of technical planning issues, including climate change, water quality and sediment management.

Goldbeck was promoted to chief deputy director in 2010. In addition to managing staff operations, he is liaison to other governmental agencies, oversees the commission’s climate change and sea level rise adaptation programs and serves as the acting executive director in his absence. He has been the commission’s lead staff member on dredging and sediment management issues for more than 15 years, has been the legislative coordinator for a decade and supervised the climate change program for three years.

Goldbeck was a principal architect of the interagency Long Term Management Strategy for Dredging program and management plan, including the creation of the award-winning Dredged Material Management Office (DMMO). He also served as the commission’s project manager for the Hamilton Wetlands Restoration Project.
