Olympia Seeks Executive Director

By Karen Robes Meeks

The search for a new executive director for the Port of Olympia is now open. The port posted the job description on its website earlier this week.

The winning candidate will manage a $10 million operating budget and 42 full time employees. The commission hopes to choose a new leader by the end of the year.

The former Executive Director Ed Galligan, who helmed the port since 2005, stepped down after the commission, desiring a directional change, placed him on administrative leave last spring. Airport Director Rudy Rudolph is serving as acting executive director while the search is underway.
