The Broward County Commission approved the appointment of Glenn Wiltshire as acting chief executive and port director of Port Everglades following the recent death of Steven Cernak.

A 30-year US Coast Guard veteran, Wiltshire has served as deputy port director since 2006.

Implemented innovative programs

Wiltshire has successfully implemented several innovative programs to support increasing cargo, cruise and petroleum volumes. He worked closely with US Customs and Border Protection and other state and federal agencies to introduce new technology such as facial recognition, mobile and automated passport control. He also negotiated multiple long-term commercial agreements and managed capital improvements to port facilities.

Efforts led to legislative changes

As chair of the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development Council Security Committee, Wiltshire led a multi-year effort that resulted in legislative changes that eliminated duplicative state security standards and separate state criminal history checks.

Prior to joining Port Everglades, Wiltshire was the USCG captain of the port of New York/New Jersey, responsible for all safety, security, environmental protection and commerce operations programs in nation’s third largest port. He also held leadership positions in Washington, DC, where he oversaw marine safety, environmental regulation, strategic transportation planning and defense response efforts.
