((OLD news, timely. I drove around Portland last week (after viewing the museum,) and did notice lots of containers. Will look for pics.))


Maine Port Authority CEO Jonathan Nass to leave for Mississippi role.

After two and a half years as CEO of the Maine Port Authority, Jonathan Nass will take up a new role at the Port of Gulfport in Mississippi, the Mississippi State Port Authority announced on Wednesday.

Nass is set to leave his current post as of April 30 and start on June 1 as executive director of the Port of Gulfport, which conducted a national search over the course of eight months.

"Itís a great opportunity to run an incredible operation," Nass told Mainebiz on Friday. . .

Nass in his resignation letter said it was a "bittersweet" moment for him, and expressed pride at the "blossoming of northern New England's only modern thriving container terminal over the past decade." He added: "The growth of this small niche port has been extraordinary and is virtually unheard of in this country."

His accomplishments include leading efforts to develop northern New Englandís only container terminal and securing tens of millions of dollars in funding for port and rail infrastructure.

More recent endeavors include reviving a planned waterfront cold storage facility via a public-private consortium led by Icelandic-owned Eimskip USA.

Nass, who is an attorney, served as deputy commissioner of the Maine Department of Transportation for close to four years before taking the helm at the Maine Port Authority.'
