Patrick Otellini

Chief Resilience Officer, City and County of San Francisco

Patrick Otellini is the Chief Resilience Officer for the City and County of San Francisco, tasked with developing the city’s resiliency strategy in conjunction with the 100 Resilient Cities initiative pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation. Otellini was originally appointed by Mayor Ed Lee in October of 2012 as the Director of San Francisco’s Earthquake Safety Implementation Program. This public policy-driven group has recently passed unanimously approved pieces of legislation that range from mandatory retrofits of soft-story building to post-earthquake repair standards with the goal of making San Francisco more resilient in the face of disaster. Prior to his appointment, Otellini was a Senior Associate with A.R. Sanchez-Corea & Associates, San Francisco’s premier permit and code consulting firm.
