Crowley names Klenck VP ship assist and escort services
Crowley has promoted Joel Klenck to vice president, ship assist and escort services, with overall responsibility for managing the company's growing tug services business from Southern California to Alaska.
Klenck holds a Doctorate and Masters degree in Anthropology from Harvard University and a Bachelors Degree from Northwestern University, in the same discipline.
Before joining Crowley in 1999, Klenck served in the United States Marine Corps, last serving as a Captain in the Field Artillery.
Klenck will relocate from Jacksonville to Seattle and will report to John Douglass, senior vice president and general manager of Crowley's marine services segment.
Klenck began his career with Crowley as a marketing analyst for the company's Puerto Rico and Caribbean liner services group in February 1999. In a series of subsequent promotions Klenck was appointed to vice president of pricing and yield management for the group. Most recently he has served as vice president of Crowley's Caribbean and Bahamas liner service.
"Joel has continued to excel during his time with Crowley," said Douglass. "He meets challenges head on and the services have grown and become more efficient under his leadership. We believe his business acumen and leadership attributes will benefit our West Coast ship assist and escort services."
