Executive Moves: Ports of Seattle and Galveston

A senior director of external relations is appointed in Washington, and a public safety chief is hired in Texas.

 
   The Port of Seattle has selected Pearse Edwards to serve as senior director of external relations.
   He previously was the port’s director of government relations. In his new role, Edwards will be responsible for government relations, community engagement, communications, regional transportation, capital project delivery and the port’s office of social responsibility. He also will serve as a member of the executive leadership team.
   Edwards has held executive-level communications and policy and political advisory roles with three governors in Washington and North Carolina. Prior to that, he worked for the International Finance Corporation in the Russian Federation helping implement privatization of state-owned enterprises. Edwards also served as a director of communications at Microsoft.
   “Pearse’s background is perfectly calibrated for the port’s external relations team, which helps create economic opportunities for our region while ensuring that local businesses and residents benefit from the port’s investments,” said Executive Director Stephen P. Metruck. “His experience in Washington state, Washington, D.C., on policy issues, operating executive offices and leading public service teams will be a great asset as the port navigates a dynamic policy environment and advances significant economic and environmental strategies.”

   Kenneth Campbell has been hired as the Port of Galveston’s director of public safety.

   Campbell has “over 25 years of law enforcement experience but understands the importance of customer service,” said Rodger Rees, CEO and port director. “His diverse, comprehensive background in managing law enforcement officers and emergency operations management makes him an excellent choice for the position.”
Campbell previously was the chief of police for the Nassau Bay Police Department. Before that, he spent 21 years with the Santa Fe Police Department.

Not that long ago, it seemed inconceivable that the good times in [U.S.] trucking would end, but here we are back down to Earth. Growth in manufacturing – the most significant driver of trucking activity – has subsided, and residential construction remains stagnant. However, there are some near-term positives, such as lower diesel prices. Also, carriers are responding to flagging demand by ending their hiring spree.

The fastest liner transit (excluding transshipments) from China to the Netherlands is from Yantian to Rotterdam at 23 days, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Country to Country Transit Analysis by Service tool.
