(San Francisco) Aug. 3, 2023 – San Francisco Travel Association, the official destination marketing organization for the City and County of San Francisco, announced that Randall Reynoso has been appointed Board Chair.
Reynoso’s term will run until the end of 2023, when Chair-Elect Terry Lewis, the Complex General Manager at Hilton San Francisco Union Square and Parc 55 San Francisco, will assume her two-year term as Board Chair. Reynoso replaces Kirsten Komoroske, who stepped down due to other commitments.
Reynoso has served on San Francisco Travel’s Board for seven years. Before being named Board Chair, he was serving his final term as San Francisco Travel’s Secretary-Treasurer. Michael Baier, General Manager of the Hyatt Regency Downtown SOMA, will serve the remainder of Reynoso’s term as Secretary-Treasurer.
San Francisco Travel President and CEO Joe D’Alessandro said, “Randy is an incredible asset to the organization with deep institutional knowledge. Most recently, as SF Travel’s Secretary-Treasurer, he led the organization through one of its toughest periods over the last four years. Randy understands the vital role that SF Travel plays in contributing to San Francisco’s overall financial health.”
“I am fiercely committed to our city and its recovery and am honored to work with such a talented team of SF Travel employees. They represent some of the top professionals in their industry,” said Reynoso. “I’m also supported by a cross-section of San Francisco Bay Area leaders, each of whom runs their own businesses and understands how critical tourism and convention business are to San Francisco’s economic recovery.”
Reynoso has 40 years of banking experience, including serving as Executive Vice President of Wells Fargo Bank from 2007 until his retirement in 2020. He led Wells Fargo’s Business Banking for the San Francisco Bay Area, investor real estate for the nation, and served as Middle Market Banking Leader for Northern California.
