Steinke Receives Foreign Trade Association Award

Recognized for leadership at Port of Long Beach

May 26, 2011

Port of Long Beach Executive Director Richard D. Steinke received the Marjorie M. Shostak Distinguished Service Award on Thursday from the Foreign Trade Association at its annual World Trade Week Luncheon in downtown Los Angeles for "his leadership in the international trade industry and his accomplishments as chief of one of the largest seaports in the world."
 
Under Steinke's leadership, the Port of Long Beach greatly increased cargo volume and became a world leader in sustainable seaport operations. Steinke, who was named the Port's Executive Director in 1997, recently announced his retirement effective later this year.

"It is with great honor I receive this award," Steinke said. "And I thank the Association for all the work that they do."
