Dean Haen is director of the Port of Green Bay, the western-most port of Lake Michigan.

The port includes 14 active terminal operators, which move more than 2 million tons of cargo on more than 200 ships annually.

Offering a direct route for shipping raw goods and materials, the Green Bay port is responsible for roughly $147 million in economic impact, according to a 2017 study. That same study found the port supports about 1,300 jobs, 564 of which were directly generated by the marine cargo and vessel activity at the marine terminals.

In October of this year, Brown County secured $10 million in federal funding to redevelop the decommissioned Pulliam Power Plant coal plant site into a new port facility – a project years in the making. The project is expected to have an economic impact of $87 million over the first five years.

Haen has also played a key role in the restoration of the Cat Island Chain in the bay of Green Bay, a habitat restoration project that involves reconstructing three islands in the lower bay.

Education: Bachelor’s, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay; MBA, Lakeland University
