SPA has pick for CEO post
Hapag Lloyd division chief called clear front-runner
By Allyson Bird (Contact)
The Post and Courier
Friday, June 5, 2009


Previous story

Happy for now, Hassell digs in; Interim SPA chief affirms that this in a
temporary job, published 01/31/09

After a nearly five-month search, the State Ports Authority has zeroed in
on a choice for its new chief executive: Jim Newsome, president of
German-based container carrier Hapag Lloyd's America division.

Though SPA officials would not release any details of the potential hire,
sources close to the process said the agency narrowed its list to five
candidates, with Newsome as the clear front-runner. If he accepts the
position, Newsome's tenure will begin amidst port restructuring discussion
at the Statehouse and ongoing negotiations with the SPA's top customer,
Denmark-based Maersk Line, which announced plans to depart the Port of
Charleston in December. A month later, then-chief executive Bernard S.
Groseclose Jr., who earned a $264,000 salary, resigned abruptly during a
performance evaluation. Port board member John Hassell assumed the position
of interim chief executive.

Before Groseclose landed the job in 1996, The Post and Courier filed a
lawsuit against the SPA when the agency refused to release the names of six
finalists. The agency disclosed the names the day before a scheduled
hearing in the case.

Hassell, then chairman of the Maritime Association and a vocal opponent of
the SPA's perceived secrecy during the 1996 search, told The Post and
Courier in January, "I'll never forget it. It's going to be different."

Reached Thursday afternoon, he deferred to search committee chairman and
SPA board member Bill Stern, a Columbia businessman who oversaw the
13-member committee.

Stern said the SPA has not drawn up a contract with a new chief executive
and that the board hasn't approved the new hiring. But, he said, they will
at this month's board meeting. He said the committee, which paid executive
search firm Boyden $97,500, launched an international search and considered
more than 100 applicants. The group narrowed the list to seven people,
interviewed five and zeroed in on one person, according to Stern.

He declined to name that person or the other top candidates and said an
attorney would consider a Freedom of Information Act request. Stern said
the committee members signed confidentiality agreements.

"I want to be as open and transparent as possible, but I also want to get
the best individual for the State of South Carolina," Stern said. "The
individual that we have now is going to take us to heights we haven't seen."

Bill Rogers, executive director of the S.C. Press Association, said the
search committee should make public the documents concerning all applicants
under final consideration.

"When these searches are done in secret, it hurts the credibility of the
Ports Authority," he said.

Robert New, owner of Charleston Port Services, raised concerns similar to
Hassell's during Groseclose's 1996 hiring. This time he worries that the
search committee includes only one person who works on the docks and is
moving toward a decision without public input.

"I understand the concerns of the Ports Authority, but the flipside of it
is should the maritime community know who the finalists are, they might be
able to provide feedback helpful to the final process," New said.

Responding to a phone call and e-mail, Newsome declined to comment. A
Savannah native, he in January became the first non-German to head Hapag
Lloyd's North American operations based in New Jersey just outside of New
York City. He previously served 11 years as the company's senior vice
president of its Southeast operations based in Atlanta.

Newsome worked as an executive of the former Nedlloyd Lines from 1987 to
1997 and, prior to that, spent a decade with Strachan Shipping Co.
