The North Carolina State Ports Authority has named Jeffrey E. Miles as deputy executive director for operations.
Tom Bradshaw, who became executive director of the North Carolina authority in August, said Miles "is leading the development of our strategic plan, working with various departments internal and external to the N.C. Ports."
Miles will be responsible for operations at the ports of Wilmington and Morehead City and inland terminals in Charlotte and the Piedmont Triad.
He joined the agency in 2005 and previously worked at the South Carolina State Ports Authority, and was president of a private marine terminal company specializing in bulk and breakbulk operations. He also managed intermodal logistics and terminal operations for major container shipping companies, including Maersk and U.S. Lines. - Chris Dupin
