Shane M. Walet was recently selected to serve as President of the Port of Iberia Board of Commissioners. He replaces outgoing president, Roy Pontiff. Appointed by the village of Loreauville in 2019, Walet brings over 25 years of oil and gas industry experience to the Port. He is presently a Quality Assurance Manager at M&M International, LLC.
”It’s a blessed and humbling feeling to be selected as President of the Board of Commissioners. As a lifelong resident of Iberia Parish, I’ve always recognized the Port of Iberia as one of the leading economic staples in The Acadiana Region and would never have imagined being tasked with this duty. However, I am ready to work hard alongside our dedicated Commissioners and great port administrative staff in making difficult, but significant decisions that will benefit our tenants, surrounding businesses and neighboring communities,” stated Walet.
“It is also a great honor to be a Port Commissioner while AGMAC, Acadiana Gulf of Mexico Access Channel is taking place. It’s a tribute to the current and prior Executive Director(s), and Board of Commissioners that have worked diligently keeping this project a priority. The dredging will allow larger vessels to utilize the port, ultimately maintaining current business and generating new opportunities.”
