Long Beach adds two

February 26 - The Long Beach Board of Harbour Commissioners has appointed industry veterans Michael Christensen and Glenn Farren to newly created management positions, introduced to enhance cargo flow and service at the Port of Long Beach.

Christensen, who most recently served as deputy executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, has been appointed senior executive for supply chain optimisation at the Port of Long Beach. He will report directly to port chief executive Jon Slangerup.

In his new role, he will be responsible for working collaboratively with industry stakeholders to find new ways to increase communication and cooperation among the links of the supply chain.

Farren, ex-general manager at Hapag-Lloyd America, has been named as the port's director of tenant services and operations - a new position created to emphasise the importance of relations with port tenants.

He will begin his new role in March 2015 and will report to Noel Hacegaba, managing director of commercial operations and chief commercial officer at the port.
