Todd Coleman announced he will be stepping down from his position as Port of Vancouver CEO to “pursue other opportunities.” Coleman, who began his career with the port in Vancouver, WA as facilities manager, was appointed CEO in 2012.
Under Coleman’s tenure, the port more than doubled its acreage to 2,100 acres; increased annual operating revenue to $38 million, and constructed a new rail entrance to the port. Additionally, Coleman oversaw conservation of more than 500 acres on the Columbia River for migratory birds.
The Board of Commissioners will appoint an interim CEO, while the port moves through the hiring process.
