We host a number of events throughout the year, including our annual International Trade Conference.
2020 Honoree Brandy D. Christian
On Wednesday, November 18, 2020, the World Trade Center of New Orleans will host the annual C. Alvin Bertel Award Ceremony honoring this year's recipient, Brandy D. Christian.
Christian has worked in the maritime industry for nearly two decades. After 14 years with the Port of San Diego where she ultimately served as vice president of business development and strategy, the Port NOLA Board of Commissioners recruited Christian to become chief operating officer of the Port in 2015. Within two years, she was named President and CEO of the Port.
Established in 1967, the Bertel Award is presented on behalf of 11 international trade, transportation, and economic development organizations in the greater New Orleans region. Each year, it honors an individual who has made significant contributions to the Louisiana maritime community.
