Broward County, Florida, officials yesterday announced Jonathan Daniels will become the new chief executive and port director at Port Everglades.

Daniels comes to Port Everglades from the Port of Gulfport, Mississippi, where as executive director since 2013 he led a $570 million restoration and expansion project. Prior to that, he was executive director of Port of Oswego in New York, managing director of the Port of Greater Baton Rouge and port director for the Eastport Port Authority in Maine.

"Port Everglades is a dynamic economic engine for Broward County that will benefit from Jonathan's business and economic development expertise," said Broward County Administrator Bertha Henry in a press release.

His tentative start date is June 29. 

Daniels also has an extensive background in economic development, having served as the chief executive officer of the Eastern Maine Development Corp., where he oversaw day-to-day operations and development efforts of the six-county economic development district; and as director of the Office of Economic and Business Development for the city of Bangor, Maine.

Port Everglades' exclusive rail provider is Florida East Coast Railway.
