Broward County Administrator, Bertha Henry, has announced that Jonathan Daniels is to be Port Everglades new CEO and Port Director.
As well as catering for cruise ships, Port Everglades handles other cargoes and is currently undergoing a $1.6 bill port expansion project.
Daniels will come to Port Everglades from Gulfport, Mississippi, where he has been the Executive Director since 2013.
“Port Everglades is a dynamic economic engine for Broward County that will benefit from Jonathan’s business and economic development expertise,” Henry said. “The search for a director who could lead our seaport into the future was exhaustive, and I am confident that we made the right choice, as demonstrated by the Commission’s confirmation of his appointment.”
In addition to his experience at Gulfport, where he led a $570 mill restoration and expansion project, Daniels also served as the Executive Director of the Port of Oswego in New York from 2007-2013, Managing Director of the Port of Greater Baton Rouge and Port Director for the Eastport Port Authority in Maine.
His tentative start date at Port Everglades is 29th June, 2020, the port said.
