Staff Changes at State Port Authority

Beth Ann Frisher

Beth Ann Frisher has joined the leadership team of the Alabama State Port Authority, taking on the role of chief commercial officer.

Like the new port’s new CEO, John Driscoll, Frisher comes to Mobile from the Port of Oakland in California, where she led business development and international marketing.

Earlier, she spent 15 years with AP Moller-Maersk in Europe and North America, working with sales, marketing, business process and pricing.


The Port also announced a promotion for marketing vice president Judith Adams.

In addition, Bill Inge, who serves as vice president of general cargo and intermodal, will take on additional responsibilities for lease terminal management at Theodore Terminals.


“These changes provide both business and administration management continuity for both our customers and employees, and better align with the Port Authority’s business objectives and strategies for growth,” said Driscoll.

The Port Authority’s container, general cargo and bulk facilities have immediate access to two interstate systems, five Class 1 railroads, nearly 15,000 miles of inland waterways and air cargo connections.
