Steinke to receive Connie Award
Richard D. Steinke, who will retire this year as executive director of the Port of Long Beach, has been selected to receive the Containerization & Intermodal Institute’s (CII) Connie Award.
During his 14-year career at the port, Steinke led redevelopment of the former Long Beach Naval Complex, creating one of the nation’s largest container cargo terminals. He also implemented a green port policy that included a successful clean trucks program in collaboration with the Port of Los Angeles.
CII said Steinke’s leadership and expertise were instrumental in winning approvals for the $1 billion Middle Harbor redevelopment project and the $950 million Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement project.
The award will be presented at a dinner on Sept. 21 at the Renaissance Hotel in Long Beach.
CII also presents scholarships to students studying logistics and companies any company can sponsor a named scholarship through CII. More than $500,000 has been distributed through its auspices since 1992.
