New Head of Long Beach Port Real Estate

By Karen Robes Meeks

Eamonn Killeen will lead the Real Estate Division at the Port of Long Beach, it was announced this week following the approval of his promotion by the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners.

Killeen, whose appointment takes effect on Dec. 8, began at the port in 2002 as a leasing officer before becoming senior leasing officer in 2009 and assistant director of real estate in 2014. In June, he became the acting director of real estate after the previous director retired.

During his time at the Port of Long Beach, Killeen has secured lease agreements with several Port tenants and coordinated the land acquisition for high-profile projects including the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement and the Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility.

In his new role, Killeen will be tasked with creating revenue through port property and facilities leases. He will also be key in enacting environmental policies.
