BURNS HARBOR, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — After four years as port director of Ports of Indiana-Burns Harbor, Ian Hirt is stepping down. The organization says Hirt will leave in early May to return to the private sector.

A national search for Hirt’s successor is now underway.

“It has been an honor to lead the northwest Indiana port that has an impressive 50-year history,” said Hirt. “It truly has been a pleasure to work with an outstanding executive leadership team, staff, tenants, commission and community partners.”

The port director is responsible for managing daily operations for Ports of Indiana-Burns Harbor.

The port authority says Burns Harbor handles approximately 10,000 rail cars, 75 ships, 325,000 trucks, 450 barges and 200 Great Lakes vessels per year.
