Timothy J. (TJ) Quandt is the Port of Olympia’s new senior harbor manager.
Quandt comes to the port with strong maritime, business operations, and customer service experience. In his previous role at the Port of Port Townsend business manager, Quandt oversaw three marinas, a boatyard, a recreational vehicle park, and a fuel dock. He previously worked as an assistant harbormaster, hoist operator and commercial fisherman.
“The port received many excellent applications for this position, and while the competition was close, we found TJ to be the best fit for the Port of Olympia,” said Executive Director Sam Gibboney. “We are looking forward to having TJ on the port’s leadership team and working with him to move Swantown Marina & Boatworks into the future under his leadership.”
