Crowley Maritime Corporation announced that Bruce Harland has been promoted to vice president of the company's West Coast, Alaska and international contract services. He will remain in Seattle and continue to report to John Douglass, senior vice president and general manager of Crowley's marine services group. Harland, who most recently served as general manager of West Coast, Alaska and international contract services, will now have profit and loss responsibilities for the business as part of the upgrade in the position. His group provides a myriad of services to customers, including energy logistics, remote offshore drilling support, ocean towing and transportation, and energy support services, including all-terrain transportation of cargo and personnel on the North Slope of Alaska. Harland began his career with Crowley in April 1984 as a cargo supervisor in Anchorage. He was promoted to operations manager and then relocated to Seattle and became general manager of contract operations in 1994. In 1998 Harland relocated to Houston as general manager of Crowley's breakbulk and project cargo transportation business. In 2002 he transferred back to Seattle as director of marine operations with the company's petroleum services group, and in August 2005, was promoted to general manager of West Coast, Alaska and international contract services. Harland received the Thomas Crowley Trophy, the company's highest honor, in 1995. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nautical Science from the US Merchant Marine Academy and a Masters in Business Administration from Seattle University.
