Port Authority names new director of port commerce

There’s a new director of port commerce for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The bistate agency announced Thursday that Molly Campbell will join the Port Authority and oversee commerce at the East Coast’s largest seaport facility.

Campbell worked as chief financial officer and deputy executive director at the Port of Los Angeles and, most recently, was director of financial management for Los Angeles World Airports.

Campbell will replace Richard Larrabee, who spent 15 years as director of port commerce after a 32-year career in the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Port Authority’s port facilities include the Brooklyn Marine Terminal, Howland Hook Marine Terminal, Port Newark and Elizabeth-Port Authority Marine Terminal.
