July 30, 2007
The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners has named Lisa Marin, who has more than 20 years experience in the human resources field, as Director of Human Resources for the Port of Long Beach.
Marin succeeds longtime director Toni Whitesell, who retired late last year.
Marin most recently served as the Chief Human Resources Officer for the District of Columbia. Previously, she held top human resources positions with the City of Columbus, the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, and private-sector cable and telecommunications firms.
As the Port’s human resources director, Marin will oversee hiring, training programs and employee development for a Port staff of about 380.
"We’re very pleased to have Lisa as part of our management team," said Port Executive Director Richard D. Steinke. "Our employees are our most valuable asset, so this was a key position for us to fill."
Marin holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Hampton University in Virginia. She is a member of the national Society of Human Resource Management and has served as the chair of the National Committee of Workplace Diversity.
