Combines Planning and Environmental Positions
Longview, WA- The Port of Longview is pleased to announce the promotion of Lisa Hendriksen from Environmental Manager to Director of Planning and Environmental Services.
Lisa joined the Port in 2010 as the Environmental Manager, charged with managing environmental initiatives and compliance for both marine terminal operations and industrial property. In her new role she will maintain her environmental responsibilities and also assume most of the duties of the Port’s former Director of Planning and Real Estate George Cress, who left the Port in September 2011 to pursue a new opportunity.
“Lisa has stepped up and taken on many of our planning initiatives,” said Port of Longview Executive Director Ken O’Hollaren. “Her leadership and experience are great assets to the Port of Longview.”
Prior to joining the Port, Lisa was the Planning Manager for Cowlitz County Building and Planning. She received her undergraduate degree in Anthropology with a minor in Sociology from Southern Oregon University and her Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from Portland State University.
