Port of Long Beach selects Managing Director of Engineering Services
The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners on Monday named Port of Long Beach senior executive Sean Gamette as the Managing Director of Engineering Services.
Gamette, the Port’s Program Delivery Group Director and Chief Harbor Engineer, will lead a bureau that oversees and executes engineering and construction projects and maintenance for the Harbor Department.
Gamette was selected after a competitive process to replace Doug Thiessen, who retired earlier this year.
In his most recent position, Gamette led a team of managers, engineers, inspectors, surveyors, technicians and support staff responsible for the Port’s capital investment program. This decade, the Port is undergoing $4 billion in modernization to increase efficiencies, reduce environmental impacts and strengthen competitiveness.
