The Port of Long Beach has launched a nationwide search to find the best candidate to fill its Deputy Executive Director post. The No. 2 management position has been vacant since its former occupant, J. Christopher Lytle, was promoted to Executive Director in January.
“The Port of Long Beach is ready to move forward to fill this key position,” said Harbor Commission Vice President Thomas Fields, a member of the Commission’s recruitment committee.
“We are casting a wide net to draw the best candidates to our world-class port,” said Commissioner Doug Drummond, the other committee member.
The Port is seeking a strong and experienced senior-level executive to support the Executive Director in the planning, organizing, directing and managing of the day-to-day operations of one of the world’s busiest seaports, a leading gateway for international trade.
The position, which functions as Chief Operating Officer, oversees the daily business activities of the Port’s four main bureaus: Engineering, Environmental Affairs and Planning, Finance and Support Services, and Trade Development and Port Operations.
Candidates must have a proven track record of successful management of port operations, financial and strategic planning, government and community relations, and trade and business development.
Alliance Resource Consulting, LLC, is conducting the search. The deadline to apply is July 20, 2012.
