Kimi Khatami, director of customer service for Pacific Harbor Line, has been named president of the Harbor Association of Industry and Commerce (HAIC), a commercial and industrial trade association representing the business community of Long Beach and Los Angeles harbors.

The association advocates for its members on trade, transportation, energy, environmental and land use issues.

"The HAIC has proven to be an invaluable asset to businesses within the harbor community and my goal is to grow that influence even further this coming year," Khatami said in a press release.

Her key challenge will entail representing HAIC on legislative matters that affect harbor interests, she said.

"My career passion has always been a combination of railroading and the study of broader transportation policy issues, so having a platform upon which to support our community and ensure its voices are heard is a responsibility I do not take lightly," Khatami said.

Khatami joined Pacific Harbor Line in 2015 and was promoted to her current position in 2018. She began her railroad career at Union Pacific Railroad, where she held positions in marketing and sales.

Last year, Progressive Railroading named Khatami one of the rail industry's Rising Stars. To read more about her, click on this link.
