Glenn WiltshireActing DirectorPort Everglades

Glenn A. Wiltshire, a 30-year U.S. Coast Guard veteran, is the Acting Chief Executive and Port Director for the Broward County Port Everglades Department, which generated nearly $170.7 million in revenue in FY2019 and is ranked among the nation’s leading container ports and a world leader in the cruise industry.

Mr. Wiltshire leads one of the world’s busiest cruise ports, South Florida’s main seaport for receiving petroleum products and a top containerized cargo seaport in Florida and the United States. His responsibilities include managing the seaport’s diverse maritime initiatives, which generate more than $33.9 billion in economic activity statewide and over 13,100 local, direct jobs, and almost $1.2 billion in state and local taxes.

Joining Port Everglades in 2006 as the Deputy Port Director, Mr. Wiltshire has successfully implemented several innovative programs to support increasing cargo, cruise and petroleum volumes. He worked closely with U.S. 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.

Prior to joining Port Everglades, Mr. Wiltshire was the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Captain of the Port for New York/New Jersey. Mr. Wiltshire’s other previous USCG service also includes serving as Chief of Staff for the Fourteenth Coast Guard District in Honolulu and as Executive Assistant to the Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety, Security and Environmental Protection in Washington, DC.

A native of Little Falls, NJ, Mr. Wiltshire graduated from the United States Coast Guard Academy in 1976 and received a master’s degree in Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University in 1982.
