LONG BEACH, CA – Forget being the CEO or a Director at the Port of Long Beach if money is your primary motivator. You’re far better off financially by becoming a Port Pilot instead.

Mario Cordero, Executive Director at the Port of Long Beach

Mario Cordero, Executive Director at the Port of Long Beach took home a total of $384,262 (salary, bonus, benefits) in 2018 according to Transparent California. Mr Cordero leads the Port’s Harbor Department staff of more than 500 people with an annual budget of nearly $800 million. At the Port of Long Beach, the buck stops with him.

David C Flinn and John L Dwyer are the two Chief Port Pilots at the Port of Los Angeles. Mr Flinn took home a total of $635,031 in 2018. Mr Dwyer took home almost as much with a package of $619,853 that same year. Port Pilots are the small corps of skilled mariners who guide ships in and out of the Port of Long Beach. Make one mistake and you could be looking at a major catastrophe.
