There are many ways to exert influence in business. Some companies do it with sheer size, while others do it with careful strategy and innovation. But at the core is leadership.
In its Fourth Quarter 2016 issue of the 10/12 Industry Report, the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report published a list of the most influential leaders in the 10/12 corridor. Port of South Louisiana Executive Director Paul Aucoin was among the list of 21 area managers and executives who, according to the publication, “…weave industry into the fabric of Louisiana, just as industry has done for them.”
Paul Aucoin has worked in economic development for 27 years, including five years in the maritime industry. He was appointed executive director of the Port of South Louisiana in 2013, after a successful 46-year law career. Aucoin has been a guiding force for business and education, serving on the River Parishes Community College Foundation, the River Region Chamber of Commerce, the River Parish Tourist Commission, the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System and the World Trade Center Board of Directors.
He is proudest of his work at the port over the last three years. “What most people don’t realize is the port’s sheer size and scope,” Aucoin says. “It stretches 54 miles along the Mississippi River in St. James, St. John the Baptist and St. Charles parishes, and is the largest tonnage port in the U.S.”
