The Port of Longview announced Thursday the hire of 20-year maritime veteran Mark Price as its new director of marine terminals.

Price will manage cargo operations as the port undertakes a number of major infrastructure projects and continues to expand, the port said.

 

Price previously oversaw Kinder Morgan’s operations in Portland, Vancouver and Longview.

 

“Mark is an outstanding addition to our team,” said Norm Krehnbiel, port CEO, in a press release. “His experience and knowledge of Northwest ports provides valuable input to our operations and business development.”

 

Price will work closely with the business development department to establish key marketing cargo strategies to expand the port’s customer base, the port said.

“The Port of Longview is an established leader in the cargo handling industry,” Price said. “I believe my proven track record in managing safe, environmentally sound and productive cargo operations will continue to add to the port’s successes.”
