The Broward County Commission approved the appointment of Glenn Wiltshire as Acting Chief Executive and Port Director of Port Everglades following the recent passing of Steven Cernak. Wiltshire, a 30-year U.S. Coast Guard veteran, has served as Deputy Port Director since 2006.
As Deputy Port Director, Wiltshire successfully implemented several innovative programs that increased cargo, cruise, and petroleum volumes. He worked closely with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and other state and federal agencies to introduce new technology into the port system, such as facial recognition and automated passport control. He also negotiated multiple long-term commercial agreements and managed capital improvements for port facilities.
