Interim Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gary Lee Moore announced today that he will not apply for the permanent position. After an executive director is selected and in place, Moore will return to his duties as Los Angeles City Engineer.

“I’m grateful for Gary’s leadership, particularly for putting the TraPac container terminal expansion project back on track,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “His professionalism and impeccable integrity has served the Port well.” 

“It’s been a privilege to lead the Harbor Department since November,” Moore said. “With my intentions clear, I hope this encourages all outstanding candidates to apply for the position.”

In addition to Moore’s oversight of key Port capital projects, he helped shape the upcoming $938 million fiscal budget and brought more accountability with an online list of approximately 200 active projects.

In his decade-long tenure as City Engineer for the City of Los Angeles, Moore has overseen an annual operating budget of $149 million and 400 active projects totaling $2.9 billion. He has been responsible for the completion of more than 1,350 projects and 3,000 emergency sewer repairs totaling more than $5.2 billion.

Nominations and submittals from interested candidates should be sent to heather@ralphandersen.com by Monday, April 14, 2014.
