The Port of Los Angeles has a new Executive Director

Mayor Eric Garcetti has nominated Gene Seroka, an executive with APL shipping line, as the next Executive Director of the Port of Los Angeles. "I'm proud to nominate Gene Seroka to be the next Executive Director of the Port of Los Angeles, the nation's top container port," said Mayor Garcetti. "I'm confident that Gene will be a strong leader who will enhance our international trade agenda, increase reliability and efficiency through effective management and labor relations, and ensure our Port is a sustainable and positive neighbor to the Harbor community."

Garcetti continued: "I would also like to thank Interim Executive Director Gary Lee Moore for leading the port so capably over the last seven months, and I am delighted to welcome him back to his critical role as the City Engineer of the City of Los Angeles, where he is responsible for the City’s vast network of public infrastructure.”

"I'm thrilled that Mayor Garcetti has tapped me to lead the Port of Los Angeles," said Gene Seroka. "I look forward to focusing our operations to provide world-class customer service while continuing to invest in a healthy and vibrant harbor community."

The Board of Harbor Commissioners will consider Mayor Garcetti's nomination at its June 5th meeting. Seroka's nomination is subject to confirmation by the Los Angeles City Council. "Gene Seroka is uniquely qualified to lead the Port of Los Angeles," said Ambassador Vilma Martinez, President of the Board of Harbor Commissioners. "His maritime and global commerce expertise, leadership skills, and strategic vision are exactly what we need as the nation’s premier trade gateway."

Martinez said: "The Board of Harbor Commissioners is grateful to all our stakeholders who generously responded to the search committee’s survey or met with our team to provide invaluable feedback and perspective. The port and its Executive Director have wide-ranging responsibilities; but with the help our diverse and engaged stakeholder base, we are confident that Mr. Seroka will succeed in his efforts to take our Port to the next level."

Seroka is currently Head of Commercial in the Americas Region for APL, based in Phoenix, AR.

Norman Hauser has accepted the position of interim president for Metro Ports, replacing former Metro Ports President James Dillman who as recently reported has taken over as CEO of Diversified Port Holdings. Hauser will report to Michael Giove, chief operating officer of Nautilus International Holding Corp.

“Until Metro Ports transitions to a new president, Norm will serve as interim president, providing seamless continuity for our valued customers, port associates, business associates, and operations staff,” Nautilus Chairman, President & CEO James Callahan explained.

Gustavo Delgado has stepped down from his post as Commercial Director of the Port of Manta.

Frédéric Vincent has resigned as Chairman and CEO of France-based Nexans cable maker group following sustained pressure from shareholders, after five years in post.

Lenaik Andrieux, Caterpillar General Manager of Electric Power Retail in Geneva, Switzerland, has been appointed President of EUROPGEN, the European Generating Set Association. He will begin his three-year term in June 2014.
