Bautch Named Great Lakes Region Director for MarAd

Wednesday, July 10, 2002
Maritime Administrator Capt. William G. Schubert today named Doris J. Bautch as Director of the Maritime Administration's Great Lakes Region. In her new position, Bautch will report directly to the Maritime Administrator in support of all agency programs, including supporting and conducting supplementary training for personnel in the maritime industries and participating in regional port and intermodal transportation development activities. Bautch will be the first woman to head any of the U.S. Maritime Administration’s (MARAD) five regional offices. “I look forward to continuing to work closely with Doris in her new assignment,” Schubert said. “Her experience in the industry and with the Maritime Administration uniquely qualify her for this position.”

Bautch most recently served as Chief of MARAD's Division of Ports in Washington, DC, where her responsibilities included chairing the National Port Readiness Working Group, improving port and cargo security, conveying surplus federal property for port use, port assessments and developing reports on the public port industry and port finance. She also served as the U.S. delegate to the Organization of American States Inter-American Committee on Ports and chaired that organization's Technical Advisory Group on Port Security and its Port Training Subcommittee. She has directed training in security and management for over 300 port personnel in the western hemisphere. Prior to joining MARAD in 1989, Bautch served as the Director of Trade Development for the Port of Greater Baton Rouge, port marketing analyst for the Port of New Orleans, an assistant manager for Hellenic Lines, and a transportation manager for The Pillsbury Company. She holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Public Administration degree from American University.
