Following an executive search, Port of Seattle CEO Ted Fick has promoted Dave Soike, the Aviation Director of Facilities and Capital Programs, to the recently created position of Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Soike has worked for the Port for nearly 36 years, beginning as a junior engineer and quickly advancing into positions in project management, maritime, and aviation. Most recently he led more than 375 employees in Aviation Facilities and Infrastructure, Aviation Maintenance, and the Aviation Building Department and Conference Center. Soike holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Washington State University and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Washington.

“Over his career, Dave has demonstrated a talent for building relationships with diverse audiences, a strong track record delivering effective large-scale and complex projects, and the ability to drive new strategic initiatives,” said Fick. “His extraordinary amount of knowledge and deep experience will help the Port meet our Century Agenda goals to support job creation and strategic initiatives such as long-range planning, continuous process improvement and environmental stewardship.”

Reporting to Soike will be the Centers of Expertise for Environment and Sustainability, Strategic Initiatives, and Capital Development, as well as Police and Emergency Management. He will serve as Acting CEO in Fick’s absence. In early 2016, Fick announced his intention to add a COO as part of a reorganization designed to enable him to focus more on regional collaboration, economic development, and internal talent development.
