New Olympia Business Development Head

Allyn J. Roe has been tapped to be the Port of Olympia’s Business Development Director, confirmed Executive Director Sam Gibboney.

Roe has business development, real estate development, and airport management experience, having worked as chief operating officer for Industrial Park at Trans Alta, and as airport manager of the Chehalis-Centralia Airport where, for eight years, he managed daily operations and retail marketing.

“The Port received many excellent applications for this position,” said Gibboney. “And while the competition was close, we found Allyn to be the best fit for the Port of Olympia. We are looking forward to having Allyn on the port’s leadership team and working with him to continue to build and foster the port’s commitment to economic development, growth and revenue generation in Thurston County.”
