Long Beach port promotes Kanter to environmental chief
The Port of Long Beach said Monday that Robert Kanter has been promoted from director of planning and environmental affairs to the newly created position of managing director of environmental management and planning.
As managing director, Kanter will oversee the port's reorganized Environmental Management and Planning Bureau, which includes three divisions: Planning, Environmental Services and Transportation Planning.
The new director position came out of recommendations in a recent study of the port's management structure. According to port officials, the position's creation reflects a growing attention to environmental projects at the port.
