Bremerton Port Seeks New Leader


The Port of Bremerton is looking for a new chief executive officer to replace Ken Attebery.

Commissioners announced Thursday that they are looking statewide as well as locally for a replacement. Attebery retired at the end of the year.

Commissioner Larry Stokes said he wants a candidate who has wide range of experience.

“The port commission is seeking a person (who) has a background in the private sector as well as the public sector,” Stokes said.

Commissioner Bill Mahan said the available position already has generated some interest, and that commissioners hope to have a replacement by April. Attebery earned about $120,000 annually. The salary of the new CEO will depend on experience, Mahan said. Meanwhile, the port’s chief operating officer, Tim Thomson, is filling in with duties. Attebery now is providing hourly consulting work for the port. Those interested can find out more at the port’s Web site,
