Douglas County Port Commissioners have selected four finalists
for the vacant Port Executive Director’s position. The four candidates picked for final interviews are Jeff
Bishop, a port director from Coos Bay, Oregon; Lisa Parks, who works as a private consultant for Wenatchee-based
Alliance Consultants; Marc Thornsbury, Director for the Port of Klickitat County; and former Chelan County PUD
executive manager, Joe Jarvis of Wenatchee. Douglas Port Commission Chairman, Mark Spurgeon says interviews of the
final candidates will be conducted March 15th. He says a new manager should be in place by the end of the month.
