Mattos Named Harbormaster At La Conner Marina

La Conner -- The Port of Skagit has promoted Paul Mattos to harbormaster at its La Conner Marina. In his new position, Mattos is responsible for managing day-to-day operations at the marina.

Mattos, the marina services representative for the past two years, learned the maritime business while working at a marina in the Tampa, FL, area prior to moving to Northwest Washington in 2008. He replaces Paul Stannert, who retired April 1, 2010.

The new harbormaster said he plans to build on the efforts made by Stannert at improving customer service, with a goal of making the marina a premier destination for Puget Sound boaters. He also looks forward to working with La Conner town officials and the business community on efforts to promote the community.
