EVERETT — The Port of Everett has hired a new No. 2.
Les Reardanz plans to begin serving as the Port’s chief administrative officer in January. He replaces Jerry Heller, who is retiring.
Reardanz, 45, is municipal legal adviser and a waterfront project manager at the city of Bellingham. He was responsible for synchronizing the city and Port of Bellingham’s efforts to redevelop 220 acres of under-used industrial waterfront property.
Port of Everett leaders expect Reardanz will help them carry out important planned initiatives, including the stalled Port Gardner Wharf redevelopment project and the transfer of a U.S. Air Force fuel tank site to the Port.
“His legal experience and public management credentials are exemplary, and I know he will prove to be an extremely valuable asset in streamlining our organizational processes,” said John Mohr, executive director of the Port, in a prepared statement.
Reardanz also will oversee fiscal matters, human resources, contracts, public records requests and union negotiations.
Reardanz earned his law degree from Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles in 1990. He is a captain in the Naval Reserve.
