Executive Moves: Ports tap leaders

Sam Ruda becomes the interim director for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey; Clark Robertson joins the Port of Corpus Christi as chief operating officer.

 
   The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey has named Sam Ruda interim port director.
    Ruda had been the deputy director of business development and strategy. He joined the port authority in 2017 after a 25-year career in transportation that included 12 years in senior management at the Port of Portland.
   He replaced Molly Campbell, who earlier announced she was leaving the port authority to accept a 2019 fellowship with Harvard’s Advanced Leadership Initiative.
   The port authority said it had initiated a national search for a permanent director. Meanwhile, Ruda will work closely with the newly named team of general managers and deputy general managers at the New York and New Jersey marine terminals.

   The Port of Corpus Christi has appointed Clark Robertson as its chief operating officer, a position last held by Chief Executive Officer Sean Strawbridge.

   Robertson previously served as the vice president of business and e-business for Jacksonville, Fla.-based CSX Transportation. He also held management roles at ProLogis and Cherokee Investments.
   In his new role, Robertson will oversee the port’s engineering services, environmental planning and compliance, operations, and safety and security functions and personnel.
With trade talks with China still unresolved, retailers appear to be bringing spring merchandise into the country early in case tariffs go up in March.
Uncertainty over the cargo volumes in 2019 will continue due to the concerns on a global economic slowdown, Brexit, and the U.S.-China trade conflict.
