Webb served as Deputy Port Director from February, 2018 to January, 2022 before being appointed as Interim Port Director.

After conducting a national search and speaking to candidates from around the country, it was determined that Webb was the most qualified individual to take over the operations of PortMiami.

She brings nearly 30 years of experience in cruise and cargo management to the world’s largest cruise port, where she has negotiated long-term investment, developed marketing and strategic plans and created international connections.

Throughout her career at PortMiami, Webb has held several executive positions, including Manager of Advertising & Public Relations, Manager of Cruise Development, Manager of Business Development, Assistant Director of Business Development and Marketing, and Deputy Director.

“Hydi Webb is beyond qualified to take over operation of PortMiami and shepherd it into a new era of success,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava in announcing the appointment. “Her expertise, professionalism, and leadership will ensure the port remains a top economic driver for Miami-Dade County, creating new jobs, opening trade networks, and maintaining top safety standards for our community. We are proud to have her take the reins of such an important institution in South Florida.”
