USA: Port of Houston Authority Appoints New Interim Executive Director

Port of Houston Authority Appoints New Interim Executive Director

The Port Commission of The Port of Houston Authority appointed Leonard D. Waterworth as the Interim Executive Director of the Port Authority at a special meeting last week. The Commission also approved a professional services contract with Boyden World Corporation to identify candidates for employment as Executive Director.

In his introduction, Port Commission Chairman James T. Edmonds said, “We are fortunate to have Len to guide the Port Authority as Interim Executive Director as we continue to build on our successes and carry out our mission of economic development and job creation for this region and state.”

I look forward to serving the port,” Waterworth said. “It’s a critically important economic engine for our region and nation, generating more than 785,000 direct and indirect jobs and $118 billion in regional economic impact and $285 billion nationwide.”

Advantage one is, I know the federal process. I’ve worked in Washington, D.C., identifying dollars out of the presidential budget. The port needs federal dollars to dredge our Ship Channel for the 45-foot depth we need to support all our customers, ” stated Waterworth.
