County hires new marine division chief

Paul Brodeur, a maritime executive with Washington State Ferries, has been named director of the King County Department of Transportation’s Marine Division.

Brodeur is a 32-year maritime industry veteran with 16 years of direct experience working with passenger-only ferry operations. He replaces Scott Davis, who will retire this fall.

“Paul brings a wealth of maritime background and experience to our Marine Division,” Department of Transportation Director Harold Taniguchi said. “As he takes the helm, Paul will oversee many exciting projects, including the acquisition of new vessels and working to secure a replacement dock along the downtown Seattle waterfront.”

Brodeur recently completed a three-vessel new construction program ahead of schedule and under budget, according to a news release. His implementation of a biodiesel fuel program for the state ferry fleet received national recognition.
