Mr. Slangerup returns to a leadership role at the San Pedro Bay Ports and replaces Eric Elzvik who served on Fenix's Board since the acquisition by EQT in 2017.
Jon has over 35 years of executive leadership experience, including the past 25 years as a corporate Director, President and CEO of both public and private companies, ranging from the Executive Director of the Port of Long Beach to CEO of FedEx's billion-dollar Canadian Subsidiary.
"Fenix is excited to have Jon join our Board, bringing his expertise in supply chain logistics and clean energy technologies back to San Pedro Bay," said Sean Pierce, Chief Executive Officer of Fenix.

During his career, he has built businesses throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, serving customers in more than 100 countries and managing more than a dozen corporate mergers and acquisitions.

Mr. Elzvik, who sits on several public company boards such as LM Ericson and AB Volvo, led the Fenix audit committee and has recently taken on an expanded role for EQT chairing the Infrastructure portfolio performance review committee.
