May 17 - Port Corpus Christi has promoted David Krams to director of Engineering Services under the supervision of the deputy port director of Engineering, Finance and Administration.

David's experience at the Port and in private practice made him well qualified for the responsibilities as the new head of the Port's Engineering Department. Krams will replace Greg W. Brubeck, who officially retires July 31, 2012 after 23 years of service to the Port.

Krams joined the port in 1994, after first working as a consulting engineer in the Corpus Christi area for ten years, specialising in underwater engineering related to marine and waterfront facilities. Prior to his promotion as director of Engineering Services, Krams was the port's senior project engineer.
