Douglas County Port Commissioners have selected Lisa

Parks of Wenatchee as the District’s new Executive Director. The selection was made following a private special

session this morning. Port Commission board chairman, Mark Spurgeon says Parks is a perfect fit for the position.

. .
Commissioners still have to negotiate Parks’ salary and benefits before she officially accepts the job. The

position has a salary range of between 74-thousand and 104-thousand dollars annually depending on experience.

Spurgeon says they hope to have Parks start work as soon as possible. Parks is the owner and co-founder of

Alliance Consulting Group in Wenatchee. She will replace Pat Haley who resigned the position last summer. Parks

was picked over three finalists for the vacant position. Jeff Bishop, a port director from Coos Bay, Oregon; Marc

Thornsbury, Director for the Port of Klickitat County; and former Chelan County PUD executive manager, Joe Jarvis

of Wenatchee.

Spurgeon discussed the selection process with Wenatchee Bureau Chief Steve Hair . .
