GPA board elects Jepson to second term |

Savannahian Robert S. Jepson Jr. was elected Monday to a second term as chairman of the Georgia Ports Authority board. The vote, with Jepson abstaining, was unanimous, as was the election of James A. Walters of Gainesville and Stephen S. Green of Savannah as vice chair and secretary/treasurer, respectively.

Jepson was appointed to the board in 2008 and previously served as vice chairman.

He said working with GPA staff has been such a positive experience he was happy to continue serving.

“These are interesting economic times, to say the least,” Jepson said in Monday’s meeting. “Through it all, our staff has done a fantastic job of focusing on customer service while protecting the bottom line.”

Gov. Nathan Deal applauded the board’s action.

“Bob Jepson’s steady leadership is exactly what is needed as we shepherd important rail, highway and maritime infrastructure projects to completion,” Deal said in a statement released by GPA.
