Paul Vorholt, Municipal Port Director for the Port of Milwaukee

Paul Vornholt, Municipal Port Director for the Port of Milwaukee, has been chosen by the City of Milwaukee Mayor, Tom Barrett, as his new Chief of Staff. He began working in the mayor’s office last week. The Port of Milwaukee is a city-owned facility and Vornholt, as the Director, is a member of the mayor’s cabinet.

For the time being, Vornholt will serve in both capacities, as Municipal Port Director and Chief of Staff. He was officially named as Municipal Port Director in 2015, after doing the job for two-and-a-half years.

Prior, he worked in a variety of positions involving public sector management and government relations at local, state and federal levels.
