Dean Corgey is vice president of the Seafarers International Union's Gulf Coast Region.
A lifelong resident of Houston, Corgey began his career with the SIU in 1973 after graduating from the entry training program for merchant mariners at the Paul Hall Center for Maritime Training and Education in Piney Point, Md.
He later sailed as a chief engineer for G&H Towing Company and continued his vocational education at Piney Point, where he earned a chief engineer/limited ocean Coast Guard License.
Corgey came ashore in 1979 and worked in Houston as an organizer for the SIU. He subsequently worked as a patrolman and, in 1986, became the SIU's Houston port agent. He became an assistant vice president in 1988 and vice president of the Gulf Coast Region in 1990.
Corgey also serves as a vice president of the Texas AFL-CIO; as secretary-treasurer of the West Gulf Ports Council of the AFL-CIO Maritime Trades Department; and on the executive board of the Harris County AFL-CIO. In January 2013, he was appointed by the Houston City Council to serve as a member of the Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority.

He currently serves as a member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Area Maritime Security Committee for the Port of Houston/Galveston and as chairman of the City of Houston Ethics Committee.

Dean Corgey to Serve on Port of Houston Commission
Houston City Council appoints Dean Corgey, V-P of the Seafarers International Union Gulf Coast Region, to serve as member of the Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority.
With the appointment of Janiece Longoria ...

With the appointment of Janiece Longoria to chair the Port of Houston Authority Commission by Harris County Commissioners Court and Houston City Council, it appears that Dean Corgey, vice president of the Seafarers International Union's Gulf Coast Region, is the frontrunner to take Longoria's previous seat on the commission. The position is one that is selected by Houston City Council.
Corgey had challenged Longoria for that seat when she was up for reappointment by the city council in 2010. Mayor Pro Tem Ed Gonzalez told Guidry News that Corgey now appears to have the backing of most of the members of the city council. Listen
Gonzalez said that the Port of Houston is running well despite recommendations by the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission that it make some fundamental changes; and he believes that the current system of appointments by the various city councils in the county and the commissioners court should continue.Listen
