The California Department of Real Estate reports Doug McCauley has been appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom as Commissioner of the department. This position requires Senate confirmation. This transition is expected to occur in early May.
Lourdes M.

For the last several months, he has been Acting Director of the department, where he has shown great leadership. I am very happy that he is staying in the BCSH family, and know he will make an outstanding Commissioner.”
McCauley has served as chief deputy director of the California Department of Housing and Community Development since 2018, and as acting director of the Department since 2019. He was executive officer at the California Architects Board from 2001 to 2018.
