Mayor Eric Garcetti has nominated Gene Seroka, an executive with APL shipping line, as the next Executive Director of the Port of Los Angeles.

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.

"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 Eric 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.”

"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."

Seroka is Head of Commercial in the Americas Region for American Presidents Line (APL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore-based Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) and the world's seventh largest ocean carrier.  He was previously President of the Americas Region.  Based in Phoenix,
