Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

On Monday, May 14th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly networking luncheon to hear a classification talk from Corey Vane of A-Throne Portable Restroom & Temporary Fencing. 

For 34 years A-Throne has been providing Southern California with exceptional quality and customer service within the portable restrooms and fencing business. A-Throne has been located in the Long Beach area since 2004 and also provides services to Ventura, San Diego and Riverside counties.

Corey Vane was raised in Simi Valley and later went to the University of Redlands where he received his degree in Environmental Studies. After having various jobs, he joined his uncle, who started A-Throne and helped make it the great company it is today. Corey now lives in Orange with his wife and young son. Corey is also on the EALB Board of Directors.

Corey’s talk gave insight into the elegant world of portable restrooms and fencing. Corey further described A-Throne as not just the typical “porta potty” that most people are use to, but they offer many different types of temporary fencing and restrooms for construction sites and special events. Corey provided examples of portable restrooms with solar panels, heating and air, and luxury trailer restrooms with sinks. A-Throne also offers different types of fencing as well like barricades, free standing fences, and fences with privacy screens. A-Throne is also going green with recyclable and biodegradable products as well as being in the early stages of waste treatment plant on their facility.

Contact A-Throne today and their dedicated customer service team will help develop a customized portable sanitation program or temporary fencing that will fit your needs.
