92nd Annual Maritime Dinner
Jim Teague, Co-CEO of Enterprise, to be Honored at 2021 Maritime Leader of the Year by the Greater Houston Port Bureau
A. J. “Jim” Teague, Co-CEO of the general partner of Enterprise Products Partners L.P., will be honored as the Port Bureau's 2021 Maritime Leader of the Year at our 92nd Annual Maritime Dinner. The Port Bureau Board of Directors named Teague as the honoree for his outspoken advocacy and financial investment to improve the Houston Ship Channel, and for rallying industry to work together to achieve that goal.
Teague was elected chief executive officer in January 2016 and has been a director since November 2010. His contributions have played a small part in Enterprise’s growth from a less than $1.5 billion company to a midstream leader valued at approximately $85 billion today.
Building on the legacy of the late Dan L Duncan, who started Enterprise in 1968, Teague has remained loyal to the founder’s values of hard work, integrity and perseverance, with an uncompromising commitment to safety. Teague’s accomplishments have earned him a number of honors, including the J. Wesley Smith Achievement Award and an Honorary Doctorate of Humanities by his university in 2009 and 2018, respectively. He has been named the CEO of the Year three consecutive years by Institutional Investor and is a recipient of the Entrepreneur of the Year award by Gas Processors Association.
Over 700 maritime, transportation, and industry professionals and their guests attend the Annual Maritime Dinner to recognize maritime leaders that have exhibited outstanding leadership and support for the port region. Recent honorees include Shell Oil Company, Port Houston Commission Chairman Janiece Longoria, ExxonMobil, and Jim Black, president of Moran Shipping Agencies, Inc. Proceeds from the Annual Maritime Dinner support the Port Bureau’s regional maritime advocacy efforts.
