Short list close for Pensacola port chief
A consulting firm heading up the search for a new director at the Port of Pensacola is expected to present a short list of candidates by the end of July, a report in the Pensacola News Journal said.
The report quoted Sam Trager of Slavin Management Consultants. The Norcross, Ga.-based headhunting firm was hired in May to conduct a national search for a director. The position pays $92,000 a year.
Pensacola city manager Tom Bonfield told the newspaper that Pam Childers, a financial services manager in the city’s Finance Department will supervise port-related finance issues until a permanent director is selected.
Michael Poole, who was serving as acting director, has accepted a position with the Port of Jacksonville.
