February 2 - The Port of Longview's board of commissioners has voted in favour of appointing current chief operating officer, Norm Krehbiel, as the port's interim ceo.

First joining the Port of Longview in 1993 as director of facilities and engineering, Krehbiel was appointed deputy executive director in 2008 and later chief operating officer.

Krehbiel replaces former Port of Longview ceo Geir Kalhagen who was released by the board earlier this month.
