For the past four years, Jackie Carter, finance and administration officer of Port Milwaukee, has been a member of the port’s senior management team, offering guidance on policy, oversight and administration across the port’s work portfolio.

“Ms. Carter brings a dynamic personality, moral character, intellect, organizational and strategic skill and passion for community service into the chief finance officer role,” said Adam Tindall-Schlicht, director of Port Milwaukee.

“At Port Milwaukee, Ms. Carter’s contributions have been invaluable. Ms. Carter has assumed new and more multifaceted responsibilities with abandon, becoming the definitive financial, budgetary and personnel expert relied upon by me and the Board of Harbor Commissioners, the governance body which oversees the Port’s work,” Tindall-Schlicht added.

He often describes Carter as the organization’s “right hand woman,” helping to grow the port into a more modern, strategic and internationally facing economic entity of the Great Lakes region. 

“Ms. Carter is simultaneously ambitious and focused at work as well as in the greater Milwaukee African American community,” said Tindall-Schlicht.
