Mario Cordero, a former Long Beach harbour commissioner and ex-head of the Federal Maritime Commission, has been tapped to run the port of Long Beach, the US’s second busiest container port.

Cordero will replace interim director Duane Kenagy next month.

“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,” said Cordero

“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,” Cordero said.
