Javier Hernandez is a first-generation Mexican-American born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley area of Los Angeles County. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from California State University, Fullerton. He later earned his Executive master’s degree in urban planning and development from the University of Southern California. Javier has nearly 20 years of experience advancing local, regional, and statewide public policy, political strategy, urban and multimodal transportation planning, capital infrastructure programming, and holistic community and economic development.

As the director of innovation and communications for the City of Pico Rivera, Javier oversees and manages regionally significant projects, strategic initiatives, legislative and public affairs, and special development programs. As an example, Javier is developing a robust transit-oriented, urban downtown community in Pico Rivera that fully integrates new parks and river revitalization, mass-transit alternatives, and a sports and entertainment district. Javier conceived, and is now leading regional efforts to establish and sustain an agglomeration economy in the Gateway Cites dedicated to the full product life cycle of micro electric vehicles. Javier has passionately devoted his career to driving equitable public and environmental outcomes by empowering communities to actively participate throughout civic decision-making processes.

Javier is passionate about music and is among the last generation of all-vinyl DJ's. He collects all sorts of oddities and is considered somewhat of a gear hack. He maintains an active lifestyle with a wide range of activities such as mountain and road cycling, handball, hiking, and circuit training. He enjoys camping, traveling, and making life-long memories with his wife, two daughters, and his Australian cattle dog, Canelo.
