AAPA announced today that it has unanimously chosen Christopher J. Connor
as the association’s next president and chief executive officer. Mr. Connor
, the former Global CEO of Wallenius Wilhemsen Logistics
(WWL), will begin transitioning into his new role on September 23, eventually succeeding Kurt Nagle, AAPA’s president and CEO since 1995.
Chris Connor has a track record of transformational leadership in the ocean shipping industry. This, combined with his deep industry knowledge and institutional tenure, makes him uniquely qualified to lead AAPA successfully into the future.
Chris is most excited about the port industry’s enormous economic impact in the Western Hemisphere, and the opportunity to harness that economic vitality in the best interest of all the association’s members.
We look forward to welcoming Chris on September 23.
