Port of Tacoma Selects Wolfe as Deputy Executive Director

Monday, June 06, 2005
The Port of Tacoma has selected John Wolfe as Deputy Executive Director. Wolfe, is currently Executive Director at the Port of Olympia. He is a native of Puyallup, Washington and a graduate of Tacoma's Pacific Lutheran University (B.A. in Business Administration, 1987). Port of Tacoma Executive Director Timothy J. Farrell says Wolfe brings a collaborative leadership style to Tacoma. "We have known John for many years and respect his ability to build teams and lead an organization," he said. "As our Port grows, it is important to bring people with John's capabilities into our organization. He will be an asset for our customers, our staff and our community." Before being named Port of Olympia Executive Director in December 2003, Wolfe served as Olympia's Director of Operations and Marine Terminal General Manager. Prior to joining the Port of Olympia in 2000, he spent 10 years with Maersk Sealand/APM Terminals in Tacoma, most recently as the terminal's Operations Manager. "John's experience will serve him well at the Port of Tacoma," Farrell said. "He has first-hand knowledge of the day-to-day challenges our customers face and an in-depth understanding of their business needs." According to Port of Olympia Commission President Bob Van Schoorl, Wolfe leaves the Port of Olympia in great shape after four years of growth in both Port business and in community economic development. "We are very disappointed to see John leave, but this is a great opportunity for him and his family," Van Schoorl said. "John has brought a lot to the Port of Olympia, and we thank him for his leadership. However, we have an excellent management team and a great staff who have also contributed significantly to our success. The Port of Olympia will continue to move forward and grow vigorously." In addition to his experience in the maritime industry, Wolfe spent two years as a computer systems analyst for The Boeing Company. The offer from the Port is contingent upon successful completion of a standard background check and physical exam.
