Port of Longview Has New CEO

After serving as interim CEO since February, Dan Stahl is now the Port of Longview’s new Chief Executive Officer, the port announced over the summer.

Stahl, who earned his master’s degree in Ocean Systems Management from MIT, and an undergraduate degree in Marine Transportation from the Maine Maritime Academy, started at the port as Chief Operating Officer in 2017, overseeing contract talks and multiple departments, such as Environmental, Business Development, Engineering and Marine Terminal Operations.

“While serving as Interim CEO the last several months, it became clear that Dan was the right choice to lead the Port of Longview into the future,” said Commission President Allan Erickson. “Dan is well-respected by Port staff and promises to be an even bigger presence in the community. We are thrilled to have Dan lead the Port into its next 100 years as our official CEO.”
