At the beginning of August, Port of South Louisiana launched the search for its next executive director. Two weeks ago, the board of commissioners voted on and has now retained the services of Shey-Harding Executive Search, a west coast firm specialized to assist the port in locating its next administrator. In spite of Hurricane Ida’s toll on our industry and community, we remain steadfast on fulfilling this task.

The new executive director will play an important role in leading, facilitating, and collaborating on key industry and organizational initiatives including long range plans, project development opportunities, key partnerships and business relationships, and national and regional branding, and now, post-hurricane restoration efforts through engagement with industry stakeholders, governing officials, committee officials, board members, and staff.
