Former Chairman Michael A. Khouri Awarded FMC Gold Medal


The Federal Maritime Commission recognized the leadership and contributions of former Chairman and Commissioner Michael A. Khouri by awarding him a Gold Medal and Citation at its May 2022 Commission meeting.

During his tenure on the Commission, Mr. Khouri had a meaningful impact in many ways, including leading Fact Finding 27, maintaining an open door to industry and agency employees, and continuously examining ways Commission regulations should serve the needs of the trade.

Mr. Khouri served on the Commission for 12 years, including four as Chairman.  He was first confirmed by the U.S. Senate in December 2009, served as Chairman from January 2017 to March 2021, and then continued to serve as a Commissioner until February 2022.

“The leadership former Chairman Khouri showed at the Commission is worth noting and honoring.  I applaud his sense of purpose as a Commissioner and his commitment to public service,” said Chairman Daniel B. Maffei.
