by Jim Guidry
Thursday, January 19, 2012

Port of Galveston Director Steve Cernak has confirmed to Guidry News Service that he has been offered the position of Chief Executive/Port Director for Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“I have been offered the position and I am honored to be considered for it,” Cernak said.  “The county commissioner has made a recommendation to the county commission.”

The recommendation is subject to confirmation on January 31.

“It is a county-run port,” Cernak said.  “It is the second largest cruise port currently in the United States; and they do other things too.”

Cernak said the port is about to go into a growth period.

“I have been proud of my time in Galveston,” Cernak said.  “There has been a lot of progress made here over the past 10 years.  It has been a pleasure working with the staff and the board and the accomplishing of goals.  But, opportunity presents itself, Jim.”
