GPA Re-Elects Chairman Walters

The Board of Directors of the Georgia Ports Authority today re-elected James A. Walters of Gainesville to serve as chairman.

Appointed to the GPA board by Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal in 2012, Walters just completed his first one-year term as chairman, having previously served as vice chairman.

At a time of unprecedented growth and the start of construction for the deepening project, Jim’s continued, steady leadership sends a strong message to those who choose Georgia as their gateway to global commerce,” said Governor Deal. “Business leaders can be comfortable with Jim’s background in economic development, coupled with a strong vision for the future of Georgia’s ports.”

Continuing in the role of vice chairman will be James L. “Jimmy” Allgood, while A.J. “Joe” Hopkins III will also maintain his post as secretary/treasurer.

I am honored by the board’s vote of confidence,” Walters said. “I am also excited by the opportunities before us as this body prepares our port facilities to handle the new demands of an evolving logistics industry.”
