September 3 - The Port of Everett Commission has appointed Les Reardanz its new chief executive officer.

Reardanz, who currently serves as the Port of Everett's deputy executive director, will begin his new role on November 16.

He brings over 20 years of leadership experience to the new role. Prior to joining the port in 2011, he served as the municipal legal advisor in Bellingham.

"We have so many big projects going on, so it makes sense to bring Les on board because he has been involved with all these projects," said port commissioner, Tom Stiger.

Reardanz will take over from current ceo, John Mohr, who retires in January.
