About the Speaker:
Ted J. Fick, Chief Executive Officer
Veteran strategist and growth-oriented leader
Ted is a dynamic leader, experienced in guiding large organizations through significant changes in the
marketplace – a proven steady hand, able to guide organizations through shifting competitive landscapes like
those facing the Port of Seattle.
Right combination of skills and expertise
Ted brings the right combination of skills, expertise, and entrepreneurial spirit to the Port of Seattle – along
with a fresh perspective and ability to transfer those skills to the specific maritime, aviation, and real estate
operational challenges of our port.
Experience in manufacturing and industry
Ted spent many years working in the Puget Sound region’s manufacturing and industrial community –
beginning at his family’s Tacoma-based foundry, Fick Foundry Co. From there he spent many years at
PACCAR, one of the Pacific Northwest’s primary manufacturers, holding leadership positions in both PACCAR
and their division Kenworth. In 2000, Ted left the PNW and has since held multiple leadership positions in
logistics and manufacturing companies. Most recently, he served as CEO of Polar Corporation, a trailer and
component parts manufacturer based in Minnesota. Ted brings direct experience manufacturing the type of
products that depend on the Port of Seattle for export to global markets.
Skilled leader of diverse workforces
In his most recent position, he led an organization with multiple operating divisions and a workforce of 2,000
employees in both represented and non-represented positions – experience crucial to the CEO of the port.
Puget Sound commitment
Ted is a Tacoma native, and brings a deep commitment to the Puget Sound region. He understands and
embraces the port’s role as an economic development leader for the region and state, and is excited to return
to his home state to lead the Port of Seattle.
