New York and New Jersey director heading to Harvard

A search for Molly Campbell’s replacement will get under way following her acceptance into leadership program as a university fellow.

   The Port of New York and New Jersey announced Thursday that it will launch a nationwide search to replace Molly Campbell, who will step down as port director on Oct. 26 to become a university fellow in Harvard University’s Advanced Leadership Initiative.
   Campbell joined the Port of New York and New Jersey Port Authority in July 2015, following a nearly 15-year career with the Port of Los Angeles, for which she served as deputy executive director responsible for the day-to-day administration at the nation’s busiest port complex. Immediately prior to joining the port authority, she served as director of financial management systems for Los Angeles World Airports. 
   “Molly is a consummate public servant, a leader in the national maritime industry and has been a major asset to our management team,” Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said in a statement. “Her unrelenting focus on continuous improvement across all port operations and infrastructure has continued to enhance the port’s capabilities and propel its standing and competitiveness among the international commerce community.” 
   During her three years overseeing the Port of New York and New Jersey, the third-largest port complex in the United States, Campbell oversaw record cargo volumes and achieved major milestones, including the arrival of the largest neo-Panamax container ship to call on the East Coast following the completions of the 50-foot channel-deepening program and the Bayonne Bridge navigational clearance project
   The port said other notable milestones achieved under Campbell’s tenure include record intermodal rail volume, the start of construction of the ExpressRail Port Jersey intermodal facility and strong growth in the auto and cruise line business. 
   She has served as chair of the American Association of Port Authorities Maritime Economic Development Committee and as vice chair of the finance committee of the International Association of Ports and Harbors and the North American Region. Campbell also chaired the Port Performance Task Force, a group of port stakeholders formed to cooperatively seek common solutions to issues to improve port productivity and efficiency.
