From Griff Lynch, Georgia Ports Authority

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

As you may know, on July 1, I assumed the duties of executive director for the Georgia Ports Authority. For five years, I have had the honor to serve as Chief Operating Officer for the GPA, under the leadership of Curtis Foltz. 

Upon taking on this new responsibility, we remain committed to significantly increasing capacity ahead of current demand so that we can accommodate your cargo into the future.
