The new Hancock County Port and Harbor Board of Commissioners held their first full meeting Jan. 25, after being sworn in earlier by Chancery Clerk Tim Kellar.

The four returning members are Robert Kane, Realtor with John McDonald Realty; Charles Gallagher, retired Navy captain and Ingalls Shipbuilding engineer; Rocky Pullman, captain of marine resources at Stennis Space Center; and Sherri Carr Bevis, the South Mississippi service coordinator for Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann

New commissioners are Daryl Cornell, CEO of Triton Systems, the ATM manufacturer; Paula Jordan, office manager for Jordan Chiropractic Center; David Malley, contractor and real estate developer; and Realtor Jon W. Ritten Jr. of Coldwell Banker Coast Delta Realty.

The commission is charged with leading Hancock County’s economic development efforts, including the continued growth and development of Commission-owned assets and services provided to industrial tenants.

At their first meeting, members elected Kane as president; Ritten, vice president; Bevis, secretary; and Gallagher, treasurer.

The new commissioners replaced Harry Farve, Keith Meranto, Gene Taylor and  Keith Marquar.
