The Alabama State Port Authority (ASPA) announced that maritime executive Richard T. Clark will be its new deputy director.

James K. Lyons, director and chief executive officer of the ASPA said that the appointment is effective July 16, 2019.

"We conducted a nationwide search with one of the country's premier maritime and port industry recruiting firms and the Port Authority received resumes from quite a few qualified candidates," said Lyons. "Clark stood out amongst all the applicants and was selected for this position. We look forward to Rick joining the Port Authority team."
