Green re-elected Georgia Ports Authority chairman
Stephen S. Green was re-elected chairman of the board for the Georgia Ports Authority and will serve his second consecutive one-year term beginning July 1.
“We are going to continue our focus on GPA’s No. 1 priority — deepening the Savannah River channel,” Green said in a statement. “It is critical to the continued success of Georgia’s ports and the nearly 300,000 jobs throughout the state that rely upon the GPA, that the Savannah Harbor is deepened up to 48 feet. The GPA will also seek opportunities to realize new growth during a weak economy, achieve additional environmental initiatives and enhance port security.”
Vice Chairman Sunny Park of Atlanta, and Secretary Treasurer Rusty Griffin of Valdosta, Ga., were both re-elected and will serve second consecutive one-year terms.
