James T. McDermott, Jr., PRPA Executive Director, Announces Retirement

[ October 13, 2015   //   ]

James T. McDermott, Jr., executive director of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA), is retiring from PRPA on April 15, 2016. At that time, he will have served at PRPA for 25 years, almost 21 years of that as its executive director.

McDermott joined PRPA as its Chief Counsel in 1991. He was appointed executive director on May 13, 1994, with his new role initially envisioned as a temporary one while a national search for a port director was undertaken.  In short order, however, the PRPA Board, the Governor’s office, and the Pennsylvania legislature decided to keep McDermott at the port’s helm.
