Satsop Manager Honored

By Karen Robes Meeks

Satsop Business Park Manager of Business Development Alissa Shay was named to the South Sound Business Magazine’s 2018 class of 40 Under 40.

“It is an honor to be working to create more job opportunities for people in our region while helping existing port customers be successful in Grays Harbor,” Shay said. “I am proud of the work we do to help make Grays Harbor a prosperous and vibrant community.”

Shay started her career at the port in 2013 following more than five years as a city planner for the city of Hoquiam.

In her current position, Shay has helmed the recruitment of Xpress Natural Gas, Overstock.com’s Customer Care Call Center and Fuller Hill Development Co., who in total employ more than 350 people at the park.

“Alissa is most deserving of this honor and we are proud of all she has accomplished during her tenure,” said Port of Grays Harbor Executive Director Gary Nelson. “I am confident the port and the community will continue to benefit from her leadership and experience as her career continues to flourish.”
