Port marina director leaves after 4 months

Three Sheets Northwest reports that Port of Everett marina director Jeff Bearman left his $95,000 job in May after just four months.

Reporter Deborah Bach says port spokeswoman Lisa Lefeber declined to say why, except that “it didn’t have anything to do with his performance while he was at the Port of Everett.”

Bearman, who apparently has a criminal record, joined the port Jan. 10 after more than 20 years of marina work, primarily in Hawaii.

In 2001, a Jeffrey S. Bearman was indicted there for theft “of wages, state purchased inter-island coupons and state purchased car rental coupons” while he was a Hawaii harbors official on the Big Island. The Honolulu Advertiser the next year reported that he was sentenced to six months in jail and community service and paid nearly $30,000 in restitution.

According to his LinkedIn profile, before coming to Everett Bearman worked as facilities and operations manager with the Port San Luis Harbor District in Avila Beach, Calif. Before that, beginning in 2001, he says he was a manager for Ocean Sports/Westrec Marinas in Hawaii, a job which followed his employment by the state of Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources and Transportation Division.

An Internet search found no other references to criminal or ethical issues in his past. We’re trying to find Bearman for comment.
