The Jacksonville Port Authority board of directors on Wednesday unanimously named longtime maritime executive Roy Schleicher as interim chief executive officer.

The board also initiated the process for hiring an executive search firm to identify candidates to fill the role permanently.

Schleicher has more than 40 years of experience in the maritime industry. He has served as JaxPort's executive vice president since 2011 following 10 years leading the port's international cargo marketing efforts and has overseen more than a decade of volume and revenue growth.

Schleicher was a leader of the negotiating team, which secured the contract with MOL for the TraPac Container Terminal at Dames Point and leads the port's development of future terminals.

Schleicher fills the vacancy created by the departure of JaxPort's prior CEO Paul Anderson.
