Port Canaveral Names Shipping Exec as New CEO

January 8, 2016

Canaveral Port Authority Commissioners today unanimously selected shipping line executive Capt. John W. Murray as the next chief executive officer of Port Canaveral.
Murray currently is the President and CEO of Hapag-Lloyd USA, LLC, a global liner shipping company in Tampa that operates about 150 modern container ships and transports more than five million containers per year. 
“We believe our port and our community will be well served having Capt. Murray at the helm,” said Commission Chairman Jerry Allender. “He brings strong business experience and leadership skills that will help the Port navigate to our next level.”
Allender said he hopes to have a negotiated contract with Murray on this month’s Commission meeting agenda scheduled for January 20. 
Outgoing CEO John E. Walsh’s last day is January 21. If necessary, Port Canaveral CFO Rodger Rees will step into the CEO role in the interim.
