Kitsap Transit names first marine services director

BREMERTON — A Bainbridge Island native will lead Kitsap Transit’s new cross-sound ferry service.

The agency announced Wednesday that Casey Harrington has been selected as its marine services director. He begins April 3.

Voters approved a sales tax increase in November to support half-hour boat rides from Bremerton, Kingston and Southworth to downtown Seattle. Harrington will be in the post three months when ferries begin sailing from Bremerton in July. Kingston service will follow in 2018 and Southworth in 2020.

Harrington, marine director for oil and gas company BP in Houston, was selected from 27 applicants.

“We are excited that our first marine services director brings an incredible depth of experience in maritime management and operations that we will draw upon as we launch fast ferry service to Seattle and manage a growing fleet of vessels,” Executive Director John Clauson said. “We were impressed not only by Casey’s outstanding credentials but his enthusiasm for the role.”

Harrington, 42, leads BP’s marine management and operations tied to exploration and production. The licensed Coast Guard master mariner oversees 148 vessels, including 31 fast ferries, involved in operations around the globe. At Kitsap Transit, he’ll begin with one — the low-wake catamaran Rich Passage 1 — and be responsible for building five more over the next five years. In his current job, he cultivated a network of marine contractors and service providers, developed processes to verify safety and quality standards for vessel operations and managed a $1.5 billion annual operating budget.

Before joining BP, Harrington was the global marine chartering manager for four years at BHP Billiton Petroleum. He held various managerial roles at Hess Corp., Westwind Resources and SEACOR Holdings.

Harrington could not be reached for comment.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in marine transportation from California Maritime Academy, an MBA from Nova Southeastern University and a master’s degree in finance from the University of Houston. He grew up on Bainbridge Island and has a wife and two children.

The salary range for his new position is $99,694 to $134,056.
