HALIFAX, N.S. — David Bellefontaine, the president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the Halifax Port Authority, has decided it’s time to call it quits.
Having served the port for the past 33 years, he has held the title of CEO since 1984. Bellefontaine managed to lead the facility to record traffic levels and financial performance in 2000.
“David (Bellefontaine) is a consummate professional, and a very dedicated employee, with whom I have enjoyed working since 1994,” says Merv Russell, chairman of the Halifax Port Authority. “The board will certainly miss him, his knowledge of the port industry and his sound advice.”
There has been no mention from the Halifax Port Authority about who will replace Bellefontaine at the end of July when he officially retires.
