The Port of Long Beach have announced that Mr. Duane Kenagy will serve as their Interim Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Kenagy currently serves as the Port’s Capital Programs Executive, overseeing nearly $4.5 billion in construction and improvement projects, the largest infrastructure investment of any port in the nation.

Mr. Kenagy is taking on the Interim CEO role following Mr. Jon Slangerup’s recent announcement of his resignation from the Port’s CEO position to become Chairman and CEO of an aviation technology company based in Canada. “Jon Slangerup leaves behind a legacy that has positioned us very well for the future,” said Ms. Lori Ann Guzmán, President of the Board of Harbor Commissioners. “The Commission is confident that Duane Kenagy will continue to lead the Port on a trajectory of excellence moving forward.”

Ms. Guzmán continued, “The Board is extremely pleased to have Duane Kenagy serve as our Interim CEO. He is highly respected by all of the Commissioners, very well regarded in our industry, and well-liked by the Port staff. Duane will lead the Port of Long Beach on a steady path forward as the search begins for a permanent Chief Executive.”

“I’m looking forward to working with the Board of Harbor Commissioners, our tenants and customers, and the talented team here at the Port of Long Beach to continue our strong tradition of service and innovation,” Mr. Kenagy stated. “I am fully committed to helping this great organization transition to the new Chief Executive at the conclusion of the Board’s search.”

Mr. Kenagy and the Commission stated he would not be a candidate for permanent appointment as Chief Executive.

The Board of Harbor Commissioners will issue a Request For Proposals this week to select a firm to conduct an international search for its next Chief Executive. “We are committed to carrying out a thorough, professional, and transparent global search for our next CEO,” said Ms. Guzmán.
