At our April 14 Annual Breakfast, business leadership expert Dr. John Izzo's keynote focused on driving individual and collective change. The event included remarks from CEO John Wolfe about the State of the Alliance.
The commissioners of the ports of Seattle and Tacoma came up with a bold vision: Instead of competing with each other, the two ports decided to join forces and form The Northwest Seaport Alliance - and historical first in North America.
At The Northwest Seaport Alliance, we pride ourselves on being proactive and performance-driven. We put unrelenting focus on anticipating challenges and providing solutions, operational excellence and the best complete value to our customers worldwide.
Our competitive difference and the value we create does not end with our customers. We believe in our responsibility to the region where our ports reside and proactively create programs that enhance our community through job creation and reducing our environmental footprint.
The Seattle and Tacoma port commissions plan to form a Seaport Alliance to unify management of the two ports’ marine cargo terminals and related functions to continue our leading role in international trade and create more jobs for our region. The two ports will retain existing port commission governance and asset ownership.
