The executive leadership team and the Board of the South Jersey Port Corporation recognized Thom Johnson for his 33 years of service to the Port and the community it serves at their board meeting today. Thom joined the South Jersey Port team as a clerk on in 1987 and worked his way up through a variety of critical and challenging terminal assignments – to become a key member of the management team taking leadership roles in marketing, operations, safety and foreign trade.
A life-long resident of Camden with an engaging personality and infectious smile, Thom understood the importance of hard work, training and education in his career objectives. So, after a full day at the Port – the graduate of Father Michael Doyle’s Sacred Heart in Camden went to Rutgers University-Camden at night to earn his Bachelor’s degree and eventually a Masters’ degree in Public Administration.
Thom will retire at the end of this year and begin the next phase of his life by using the skills he developed over the past 33 years to continue to give back to the community. He has been a valued team member and we all wish him well for his continued success.
