There’s a change at the top at the Port of Pensacola – one that is making history.
Amy Miller is the new Port Director – and the first woman to hold that position since the port began operating in 1743. She's also the lone female port director in Florida.
Mayor Ashton Hayward made the appointment, following the resignation of Clyde Mathis last week. In his letter, Mathis give no reason for stepping down.
Miller believes ports should evolve to keep up with the inevitable changes in commerce. Her priorities are jobs and revenue for the port, in that order.
