BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Space Coast Daily Special Correspondent Keith Malone sat down with new Port Canaveral CEO Capt. John W. Murray to discuss his vision for the development of one of the region’s major economic drivers.
Canaveral Port Authority Commissioners in January unanimously selected the veteran shipping line executive as the new chief executive officer, who succeeded former Port Canaveral CEO John Walsh, who resigned Jan. 21.
Previously, Capt. Murray was the president and CEO of Hapag-Lloyd USA, LLC, a leading global liner shipping company in Tampa that operates about 150 modern container ships and transports more than five million containers per year.
“We believe our Port and our community will be well served having Capt. Murray at the helm,” said Commission Chairman Jerry Allender.
“He brings strong business experience and leadership skills that will help the Port navigate to our next level.”
Capt. Murray has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nautical Science from the Maine Maritime Academy; serves on the Transportation Research Board for the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine; and has been a director with the National Cargo Bureau; and member with the National Defense Transportation Association and the Propeller Club of the United States.
