It is with heavy heart that AAPA shares the passing of Tim McNamara, vice chairman and partner at Odgers Berndtson, on December 5, 2022. A decade-long member of AAPA, Tim was known for his passion in helping others. He was a trailblazer in global executive search, leadership development, and strategic organizational design consulting for over 25 years. Tim was instrumental in transforming leadership recruitment in the maritime transportation and infrastructure sectors with additional focus on aerospace, defense, cyber, U.S. Government, foreign governments, private equity/P3 and other clients. He was named one of the top 100 most influential headhunters in the world by Businessweek. In 1989, Tim was knighted by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark in recognition of his service to the country.

Tim featured prominently in bringing a number of current AAPA port executives into their roles, as well as placing the current AAPA CEO Chris Connor. Tim will be missed by AAPA and the many partners he worked with over the years. Our thoughts are with Tim’s wife Judy, his family, friends, and colleagues.
