Formed by the Washington State Legislature in 1961, the WPPA promotes the interests of public ports through effective government relations, ongoing education and strong advocacy programs. Oliver was elected to the position of president on November 30 at the association’s annual membership meeting in Seattle, Washington.

Oliver also is the incoming president of the Port of Vancouver Board of Commissioners for 2013. Elected in 2007, Oliver holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Michigan. His career includes 20 years in the medical products distribution business as well as seven years in the financial brokerage business. Oliver also was self-employed for eight years when he worked in mid-market mergers and acquisitions. He retired from business in 2008.
