Port Of Gulfport Names New Director

The search for an executive director for the Port of Gulfport is now over. Port Authority Commissioners announced at a special meeting Wednesday night that Don Allee will fill the position. You may remember, Gary LaGrange left in September to fill the Port Director's position in New Orleans. Allee comes to us from the Port of Beaumont, as executive director there. He says he's excited about what the Port of Gulfport has to offer. Allee has worked at the ports in Beaumont, Freeport and Houston. He also has 20 years of experience in marine transportation. He and his wife, Michelle, will be looking for a place to live here as soon as Allee can iron out the details of his Beaumont contract. The Allee's have two teenage children.
