The Port of Seattle’s commission has voted unanimously to install retired US Coast Guard (USCG) Rear Admiral Stephen Metruck as the facility’s new executive director.

Metruck will replace former CEO Ted Fick who resigned in February under a cloud over compensation payouts to staff, including himself, and suggestions he directed port business to his father’s company.

As well as overseeing the port – which is part of the Northwest Seaport Alliance with Tacoma – the job also entails overseeing Seattle-Tacoma international airport.

Metruck, a native of Massena in New York, has strong northwest connections after being captain of Coast Guard Sector Seattle from 2005 to 2008.

He said the port is an “economic engine” for the Pacific Northwest region, which has great growth potential.
