New Maritime Director at San Francisco

By Karen Robes Meeks

Andre Coleman, Northern California area associate director for the Pacific Maritime Association, is the new Maritime Director for the Port of San Francisco effective March 4.

According to the port, Coleman will oversee the Maritime Division’s 28 employees and be responsible for the “strategic oversight and implementation of the port’s maritime portfolio including assets, services, operations, and labor and client relations for the 7.5 miles of San Francisco waterfront that extends from Fisherman’s Wharf to Islais Creek.”

“Andre Coleman will bring extensive maritime knowledge and relationships to the port,” said Port of San Francisco Executive Director Elaine Forbes. “His expertise in a wide range of maritime functions including labor relations and terminal, vessel, and yard operations will ensure San Francisco remains a waterfront for our working women and men, and the port sustains our growing maritime industry and remains fiscally secure.”
