The Port of Bellingham’s board of commissioners voted unanimously to appoint Fred Seeger to serve as interim executive director.
Seeger will assume the interim position immediately while the commissioners undertake a nationwide search for a permanent executive director.
Seeger replaces Jim Darling, who served as executive director for 15 years. Late last month, Darling announced his resignation to work as a vice president and principal for a Northwest consulting firm. During his final week at the Port, Darling will assist Seeger with the transition.
