Edwards, CEO and Executive Director of the Virginia Port Authority. “It is a strategic move to capitalize on this port’s growth and the $1.4 billion we are investing to ensure we remain modern, competitive, and efficient. “When the private sector be- gins matching the investments we’re making in our facilities and capabilities, it supports our growth and sends a very clear signal to the industry that Vir- ginia is open for business.
