The Port of Tacoma has issued its request for proposals (RFP) for executive search firms to help the commission find a new executive director.
The five-person port commission has been hashing out in study sessions how to conduct a search to replace former executive director Tim Farrell, who left the port at the end of last year.
The board is looking for a firm that has experience recruiting maritime industry executives, planning and conducting outreach and communications related to the search, and helping negotiate an agreement with a final candidate, according to a port news release.
Deputy Director John Wolfe is working as the port’s interim director until a new leader is found. Find the full RFP on the Port’s Web site.
