Port Manatee Says Goodbye to Outstanding Employee

Published Friday, June 20, 2014 12:04 am

PALMETTO – Frank Holden got lots of hugs at Thursday's Port Authority meeting as he said goodbye to PA commissioners, staff and Port Director Carlos Buqueras. Holden is retiring from his job of 14 years as senior director of operations and special projects.

 

Holder has had a stellar career; 32 years as a police officer, serving 18 as chief of police for two separate Montgomery County, Pennsylvania municipalities. 

 

At Port Manatee he held many positions; starting as a temporary employee warehouseman on to warehouse manager. He soon moved on to compliance officer, then director of seaport security, and then senior director of seaport security.

 

Holders previous career in law enforcement made him a natural for all of his security position with the last being, senior director of operations and special projects. 

 

As commissioners and port staff reflected on what they all described as outstanding service, Holder humbly accepted a duplicate of the port's bell. 

 

Frank and his wife Judy are looking forward to spending a lot more time together. 

 

Frank, you will be missed by all.
