By Karen Robes Meeks

After 33 years leading the American Association of Port Authorities, AAPA President and CEO Kurt J. Nagle will retire this fall.

Nagle started at AAPA as the membership services director in 1985 before taking the reins 10 years later. During his tenure, he guided the organization that now represents140 seaport authorities in the US, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean.

“It’s been an honor to serve the public ports in the Western Hemisphere and a privilege to work with so many dedicated professionals,” said Nagle. “This industry is blessed with professionals willing to share their experiences and lessons-learned with their colleagues, and to collaborate on common challenges and policy issues. This positive and beneficial culture, along with the wonderful professional staff here at AAPA, have made it a pleasure to be a part of this great industry.”
