The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners appoint chief harbor engineer Al Moro as the Port of Long Beach’s interim executive director.

Moro, who joined the Port in 1997 as a civil engineer, currently oversees all administrative and technical activities for the Port’s engineering programs, including nearly $4 billion in capital improvement projects.

“The Board is extremely pleased that we have unanimously selected Al Moro as our interim executive director. He is highly respected by all of the commissioners, very well regarded in our industry, and well liked by the Port staff. Al will lead the Port of Long Beach on a steady path forward as the search begins for a permanent director,” said Susan Anderson Wise, president of the Board of Harbor Commissioners.  

Moro’s appointment will go into effect following a formal vote on June 17, said Wise. Moro, who said he would not be a candidate for the permanent position, will fill in for Chris Lytle, who announced on May 23 that he was leaving the Port of Long Beach to head the Port of Oakland. 

“I am honored to have been selected by the Board of Harbor Commissioners to serve as interim director,” Moro commented. “A major goal of mine will be to provide stability and continuity during the transition. It’s important that we continue to move forward with all of our projects.”

As chief harbor engineer, Moro has overseen all administrative and technical activities for the Port’s four engineering divisions, including construction management. He supervised 135 engineers, surveyors, technicians, and support staff, and managed the Port’s extensive capital improvement program, including the replacement of the Gerald Desmond Bridge.
