The S.C. Ports Authority board approved salaries for senior management last week during the board’s October meeting.

Senior management received a bump across the board, including bonuses, which are based on hitting targets for cargo volumes and operating cash flow.

Pay increases go into effect Jan. 1.

The board also approved the promotion of Barbara Melvin, senior vice president of operations and terminals, to COO, a new position for the port.

Port CEO Jim Newsome said Melvin’s experience managing terminal operations, hiring the bulk of port employees and leading the charge on the harbor deepening project led to her promotion.
