Cordero takes the lead at Long Beach port
The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners voted on 14 April 2017 to appoint Mario Cordero, a former chairman and current member of the Federal Maritime Commission, as the port of Long Beach’s new executive director. Cordero, a Long Beach resident and attorney, served previously as president and as a long-time member of the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners.
"I am so pleased to be coming back home to the port of Long Beach during this time of dramatic change in the maritime industry. The broad perspective I gained at the national level, along with my many years of service as a Long Beach Harbor Commissioner and my love for the community of Long Beach will allow me to hit the ground running," noted Cordero who will succeed Duane Kenagy, interim executive director since late 2016.
