Susan E. Anderson Wise recently was elected president of the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners by her fellow commissioners as part of the commission’s annual board officers selection. Wise, who was appointed to the Harbor Commission in 2008, succeeds Commissioner Nick Sramek, who has served two terms as president.

The commission president serves as chair of the commission, running board meetings and often representing the port to the public and shipping industry. The five-member commission is the governing body of the Port of Long Beach, which is the Harbor Department of the City of Long Beach. The commissioners set the financial and policy direction for the port, the second-largest container seaport in the United States.
