Douglas Port District Commissioners Select Lisa Parks for Executive Director Post

March 23, 2011

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 . .
