Amy Miller currently serves as the Director of the Port of Pensacola.
With her appointment to the position of Port Director, Amy became Pensacola's first female Port Director as well as the only currently-serving female Port Director in the state of Florida and in the U.S. Gulf Coast region.
An Ohio native, Amy holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University.
Following a successful career in print journalism that took her from Ohio to California and, finally, Louisiana, she entered the seaport industry in 1993 as Communications Director for the Port of South Louisiana. In 1997, she was named Trade Development Manager at the Port of Gulfport, Mississippi, where she was instrumental in attracting Crowley Maritime’s Central America-Gulf container shipping service and Gearbulk Shipping’s US Gulf-South America breakbulk shipping service to that port.
Amy made her way to the Sunshine State in 2002 when she became Port of Pensacola’s Manager of Business & Trade Development. In 2006, her duties were expanded to include oversight of the port’s budgeting, finance and human resources activities.
