In the role, which he takes on from July 29, Morteboy will be responsible for establishing and tracking schedules, budgets and costs for the delivery of the port’s infrastructure projects.

He comes to the port of Long Beach after working two years as director of project controls at UC Davis Health, where he oversaw the planning and design of the agency’s capital improvement programme.

Port of Long Beach set out a USD760 million budget for its 2025 fiscal year, which will fund new capital improvements in rail, zero-emissions and other infrastructure.

HLPFI reported in June that the port earmarked USD368.3 million for capital improvements. This will help to advance the Pier B on-dock rail support facility that aims to increase the number of containers moved at the port using trains. Funding has also been allocated to the proposed Pier Wind development, which if approved would become the largest offshore wind turbine assembly facility in the USA.
