By Karen Robes Meeks

Port of Vancouver USA CEO Julianna Marler will be recognized with a 2018 Clark College Iris Award for her leadership achievements during her decade-long career at the port, and her role in advancing the region’s economic development and success.

She is among four local women to be honored at the awards reception on International Women’s Day, March 8.

As CEO, Marler leads a port that annually creates an estimated $2.9 billion in economic benefit to the region, including 3,200 direct jobs and 20,000 indirect positions.

“Through everything the port experienced over the last few years, Julianna has been a steadying and uplifting hand, leading the port’s team, building on our partnerships and keeping everything running smoothly as we grow,” said port commission President Eric LaBrant. “We’re very fortunate to have her at the helm and proud that she’s being recognized for her hard work.”
