Dillman Appointed CEO, Diversified Port Holdings

Posted by May 12, 2014

The Diversified Port Holdings (DPH) Board of Directors has announced that James “Jim” Dillman will take over the role of CEO of DPH effective May 30, 2014.

Dillman has 25 years experience within the stevedoring industry including sales and operations. A graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, Jim has been in executive leadership roles since 2004 with companies Swire Shipping and Ceres Gulf. For the past four years, Jim has served as President of Metro Ports where he provided leadership to approximately 140 employees at 21 ports across the United States and Canada.

“After a comprehensive search process, the board is pleased to have found the best individual to assume leadership of the company," said Chris Kinney, Chairman of the Board. The selection of Dillman concludes a search process facilitated by Boyden, a global executive search firm that has a specialized global practice group focusing on placing senior executives in the multi-modal transportation infrastructure sector.

Terry Brown, who is retiring from the CEO post on June 30, expressed confidence in the board's choice: "Jim is a strong leader, with proven expertise in the industry and a good fit for the company’s culture.” Terry’s decision to retire will bring to a close a period of leadership during significant change in the company. "The board is grateful for his contributions and dedication as CEO over the past 13 years." said Chris Kinney.

During the month of June, Terry and Jim will meet with customers, business partners and stakeholders to facilitate a smooth transition.
